Using feminist archetypal theory and theory of the female Gothic, the author of this work attempts to show how Wharton adopts and adapts Gothic elements as a way to explain the nature of feminine and masculine ways of knowing and being, and to dramatise the tensions between them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fedorko s analysis of gender in the Gothic stories is superb, but the most intriguing aspect of her work is her recovery of the Gothic subtext of the novels and nonfiction. American Literature
"
"Fedorko's analysis of gender in the Gothic stories is superb, but the most intriguing aspect of her work is her recovery of the Gothic subtext of the novels and nonfiction. . . . Her provocative work both spells out some strands in the complex relation between Wharton's Gothic and Wharton's realism and invites further consideration of this relation."
--American Literature
"Innovative but persuasive. This is a very impressive book, polished, seasoned through careful consideration of new criticism on Wharton's work (the bibliography is excellent), and very much a new way of reading this oeuvre. Not only is Fedorko's approach new, but her inclusion of a number of short stories with the key novels makes the study unusually comprehensive."
--Linda Wagner-Martin, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
