Perils of the night : a feminist study of nineteenth-century Gothic

Author: Eugenia C DeLamotte
Publisher: New York : Oxford University Press, 1990.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
DeLamotte's book begins from the premise that the major conventions of the Gothic romance involve boundaries or barriers, which the Gothicist uses to play simultaneously on the fear of separateness and the fear of unity with some alien Other. She explores this question in the works of English and American writers, including Henry James, Mary Shelley, Herman Melville, Hawthorne, Emily Bronte, and Charlotte Bronte.
