Product Description

“If you are looking for a clear and concise guide to all aspects of The Gothic, ranging from literature to architecture, history to visual arts, music to fashion, horror to fantasy, subculture to philosophy, and more besides, then this is for you.”
John Nicholls, University of Hull


What is the Gothic? A genre, a style, a movement, a subculture? The Gothic is all of this, and so much more; it is one of the most enduring and fertile artistic traditions in the history of modern civilization. Since the publication of The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole in December 1764, the Gothic has constantly rejuvenated and reinvented itself, taking on new forms while remaining true to its aesthetic principles.


From old castles to futuristic cities, from corrupt priests to urban predators, from medieval poetry to modern rock, the Gothic evolved over the centuries, transforming the popular culture in the process. Like Frankenstein’s creature, the Gothic is alive and one can feel its beating heart in every art form and media.


This guide provides an overview covering all facets of the Gothic culture, from its philosophical basis to its practical applications in literature, comics, cinema and television, music, games, digital art, and fashion.
