Dyfyniadau

‘Aldana Reyes’ groundbreaking study of a wide range of critically neglected literary and filmic texts from the last thirty years focuses on the significance of the body to the gothic tradition, particularly in its more bloody and gruesome manifestations. It is an utterly essential read for those with an interest in gothic subjectivity, the nature and limits of the corporeal, the transgressive imperative and the affective function of the visceral.’
–Dr Linnie Blake, Director of the Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies
