Frankenstein by Fred Botting

Book Description

Emerging from the shadow of popular reproductions, Frankenstein's importance in debates about gender, culture and politics has been dramatically affected by recent developments in criticism and theory. This volume collects the most significant contemporary work on the novel from Marxist, Psychoanalytic, Historicist, Feminist, Poststructuralist and Postcolonialist perspectives. The book reflects the way that monstrosity in its literary, historical and philosophical context raises crucial questions for modern issues of sexuality, class, science, race, language and identity.

Monstrous Media/Spectral Subjects by Fred Botting Monstrous Media/Spectral Subjects, Hardback (April 2015)

Explores the intersection of monsters, ghosts, representation and technology in Gothic texts from the nineteenth century to the present.

Limits of Horror by Fred Botting Limits of Horror, Paperback (October 2010)

This is a major re-evaluation of the role and cultural significance of Gothic horror. It offers analysis of literary, film, art and popular cultural texts and critical explanations of key terms (horror, uncanny etc.) to interrogate the contemporary and historical significance of monsters, vampires and ghosts in technological and consumer culture.

Gothic Romanced by Fred Botting Gothic Romanced, Paperback (June 2008)

The dark, destructive and monstrous elements of gothic fiction have traditionally been seen in opposition to the rose-tinted idealism of Romanticism. This study traces the history of gothic and romantic writings from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries onwards.
