What People are Saying About This

Walter Herbert

Argues that the claustrophobic horrors of Gothic literature are not private, but arise where concrete experience contradicts the dream world of social myth. This brilliant interpretation of the Gothic treats the nightmares that emerge when the reality of racial oppression disrupts the vision of America as a land of freedom.
