Mae Female Gothic Histories: Gender, History and the Gothic yn astudiaeth arloesol newydd ar sut yr âi ysgrifenwyr benywaidd ati i ddefnyddio ffuglen hanesyddol Gothig i leisio’u gwrthwynebiad yn erbyn y modd y’u halltudiwyd o naratifau hanesyddol traddodiadol.


In 'Female Gothic Histories' Diana Wallace provides a powerful account of the centrality of historical fiction to the evolution of the Gothic and, in the process, re-writes the story of the origins of the historical novel. Her finely-argued and nuanced case-studies -- ranging from Sophia Lee in the C18thth to Sarah Waters in the C21st -- will cause readers to reflect anew upon both genres and the intriguing ways in which their genealogies intertwine. Elegantly written, carefully researched and imaginative in its use of literary and feminist theory, this book will quickly establish itself as priority reading for students and scholars alike. Professor Lynne Pearce, Lancaster University.
