About this book

Fascination with the dark and death threats are now accepted features of contemporary fantasy and fantastic fictions for young readers. These go back to the early gothic genre in which child characters were extensively used by authors. The aim of this book is to rediscover the children in their work.

About the authors

Margarita Georgieva is a lecturer at the Université de Nice in France. She teaches professional translation and English courses. Her most recent translation is Dr Vanessa Marcié's Culture and Politics in France (2012). Georgieva's research interests range from 18th and 19th-century gothic to science fiction, fantasy literature and the child.

Reviews

"Understanding something that encompasses centuries of individual works in multiple mediums is a challenge. Focusing on the evolution of the child motif, Georgieva's impressive study introduces readers to individual texts and provides an overview. Essential reading for students of Gothic!" - Carol Senf, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA

"Reading this book is like peering into a trunk of long forgotten and highly loved novels. Instantly readable and highly engrossing, Margarita Georgieva's thorough study is sure to become a staple in the genre for academics, classrooms, and Gothic aficionados alike." - Curt Herr, Kutztown University, USA

"This first significant and substantial study of the role of children in Gothic literature is essential reading for students and scholars alike. Well researched and critically informed, Georgieva's study allows us to view the Gothic Child as never before." - Franz Potter, author of The History of Gothic Publishing, 1764-1830
