What People are Saying About This

Courtney Lehmann

"Hopkins offers a remarkably fresh perspective on Gothic trends in both early modern and postmodern culture. . . . [H]er exploration of what constitutes 'the Gothic' has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about a genre that has too often been associated with horror."
