‘Gothic Remains is a wonderful example of detailed interdisciplinary work in action. Laurence Talairach provides an utterly convincing argument of the imbrication of gothic literary culture with medical anatomy. In doing so, she reshapes the genre and adds significantly to the ever-growing body of scholarly work on romanticism and the sciences.’
Professor Martin Willis, Cardiff University

‘Gothic Remains offers a well-written, balanced and informative overview of the rise of the medical gothic; its penetrative, interdisciplinary readings explore the long nineteenth century’s reassessment of medical knowledge and its impact on questions of truth, materiality and humanity. This work will be of value to a wide range of scholars interested in literature, gothic and the medical humanities.’

Professor Andrew Mangham, University of Reading
