Gothic Transgressions

Extension and Commercialization of a Cultural Mode

Edited by: Ellen Redling, Christian Schneider

The articles in this volume discuss specific ways in which the Gothic transgresses boundaries, be they historical, spatial, national, aesthetic, generic, modal, medial, or sexual. Offering a wide range in every respect - from 'Proto' to 'Post-Gothic,' from mythical to digital, from national to 'Globalgothic,' from metropolitan to 'EcoGothic,' from traditional to 'Candygothic,' from novel to film and from Shakespeare to Steampunk - this collection aims to enrich as well as extend the scholarly debate on the Gothic as a multi-faceted mode of expression that goes beyond limits and, much like a vampire, constantly refreshes itself by feeding on the lifeblood of topical issues.
