Graveyard Gothic is the first sustained consideration of the graveyard as a key Gothic locale. This volume examines various iterations of the Gothic graveyard (and other burial sites) from the eighteenth century to the twenty-first, as expressed in numerous forms of culture and media including poetry, fiction, TV, film and video games. The volume also extends its geographic scope beyond British traditions to accommodate multiple cultural perspectives, including those from the US, Mexico, Japan, Australia, India and Eastern Europe. The seventeen chapters from key international Gothic scholars engage a range of theoretical frameworks, including the historical, material, colonial, political and religious. With a critical introduction offering a platform for further scholarship and a coda mapping potential future critical and cultural developments, Graveyard Gothic is a landmark volume defining a new area of Gothic studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Historically and culturally wide-ranging, Graveyard Gothic offers a scintillating scholarly unearthing of the multivalent site of the graveyard – a place of sentimental and morbid contemplation, commemoration, community celebration, portal between life and death, source of supernatural frisson, heterotopia, and necropolis. Exploring the multifarious intersections of the Gothic/horror plot and the graveyard plot, the essays in this groundbreaking collection are sure to lay the foundations for much future scholarship.’ Professor Carol Margaret Davison, editor of The Gothic and Death (2017) ‘Graveyard Gothic provides a definitive account of the role of the graveyard in the Gothic imagination. The graveyard’s place in poetry, fiction, TV, films, and video games is explored in detailed and persuasive depth. Insightful and scholarly, this volume makes a major contribution to the understanding of cultural history.’ Professor Andrew Smith, author of Gothic Death 1740-1914: A Literary History (2016) - .
