MEDIA REVIEWS

"Ledoux's examination of gothic writing in relation to social reform ... demonstrate its claims with evidence from a wide array of historical documents, and it succeeds in mounting a convincing argument about the `political activism' of the early gothic ... . the study is well written and rigorous, and it joins a recent groundswell of scholarship on the political and cultural work of gothic and horror fiction from the eighteenth century to the present." (Agnieszka Soltysik Monnet, Eighteenth-Century Fiction, Vol. 28 (3), Spring, 2016)
