About this book

This book explores new critical ground by addressing the intersection of two contentious concepts, postfeminism and Gothic. This collection of original and exciting essays examines a number of Gothic texts, from Anne Radcliffe's romances to modern horror films, in conjunction with diverse postfeminist theories, from backlash to postmodern feminism.

Reviews

' Postfeminist Gothic makes a critically important reappraisal of gender scripts in a range of Gothic narratives. Its examination of textual and visual forms, including film and television, provides a comprehensive reconsideration of the culture of the Gothic from the 1970s to the present day. Crucially, the volume explores how debates about gender can be traced within the Gothic and so brings to light how identity is constructed in postmodernity. Written by experts in their field, these essays make a provocative and groundbreaking contribution to scholarship on the Female Gothic, Gender Studies, and Gothic Studies.' - Professor Andrew Smith, University of Glamorgan, UK
