Gothic writing has enjoyed a revival in recent years and many lesser-known titles have been republished. Traditional approaches analysed the Gothic in terms of escapist fantasy or as an unconscious reaction against the Enlightenment.

Drawing extensively on the ideas of Michel Foucault he situates Gothic writing within the discursive tensions of the period and by looking not just at novels, but Gothic poems and dramas he effectively takes the Gothic from the periphery of 'popular fiction', replacing it at the centre or debate about Romanticism

The story is rather simple in the beginning. It tells of a romantic love of young dashing nobleman Vivaldi in Naples, who falls in love with a girl Ellena. But his plan of marriage is soon interrupted by the vicious monk Schedoni. Then ensue abduction, murder (attempted or not), and the Inquisition. There are lot of suspense, terror, and thrill that come from the fluent narrative of Radcliffe... --Tsuyoshi at
