MUP Anthology of Australian Colonial Gothic Fiction by Kenneth Gelder
Book DescriptionGrisly corpses, ghostly women and psychotic station-owners populate an unforgiving landscape that is the stuff of nightmares. These compelling stories are the dark underside to the usual story of colonial progress, promise and nation-building, and reveal the gothic imagination that lies at the heart of Australian fiction. This anthology collects the best examples of colonial Australian gothic short stories by authors such as Marcus Clarke, Hume Nisbet, Henry Lawson and Katherine Susannah Prichard, among others.

A challenging and thought-provoking work that offers a new way of understanding how the sacred haunts the modern through the effect of the uncanny. Gelder and Jacobs show how Aboriginal claims for sacredness radiate out to affect the fortunes and misfortunes of the modern nation.
