Originally published in 1947, Bertrand Evans' landmark study of the Gothic drama during its most definitive and dominant period (1760s to 1820s) was the first scholarly attempt to formulate a discrete canon of Gothic plays, to trace the literary history of Gothic drama as an influential form of theatre, and to explain the relationship between the Gothic spirit on stage and in the novel. This re-edition assesses the importance of Evans' monograph as a critical starting point for studies of the Gothic.
