Summary
"This book uses clinical psychoanalytic theory to illustrate how early British Gothic fiction reveals undercurrents of psychopathological behavior. Chapters consider the division of the Gothic novel; how early British Gothic romance parallels Freud's notion; the genre's origins in Walpole's The Castle of Otranto; sexual differentiation; Ann Radcliffe; Matthew Lewis; and the confusion between self and other"--Provided by publisher
