"Wright's elegantly written volume offers original perspectives and insights at every turn ... Consistently and convincingly argued throughout, Britain, France and the Gothic avoids the pitfalls of unspecified "influences" and general similarities. Instead it maps channels of contact, borrowing, adaptation, rewriting and translation in order to demonstrate how Gothic fully participated in the many networks of Franco-British cultural exchange between the Seven Years' War and the post-Napoleonic era. A crucial contribution to studies of Gothic and the cross-cultural dimensions of British Romanticism, Wright's book is set to change how we study and discuss these literary manifestations beyond purely national boundaries."
Diego Saglia, BARS Bulletin and Review
"Britain, France and the Gothic, 1764-1820 is packed with precise textual analysis, clear historical investigation and contextualization, and many a well-turned sentence."
