Am y llyfr

Mae’r gyfrol hon yn archwilio’r genre Gothig benywaidd a’r modd yr ehangodd i gynnwys nid yn unig ystyriaethau’n ymwneud â rhyw ond hefyd feirniadaethau cymdeithasol o rywioldeb rhwystredig, economeg ac imperialaeth.

Dyfyniadau

"This groundbreaking study makes a persuasive case that nineteenth century women authors wrote ghosts into their fiction and poetry not just to entertain but as a vehicle for social criticism. Through the figure of the ghost, they drew attention to religious, gender and class-based inequality within British society and to the human costs of empire and the industrial revolution." Professor Paula Feldman, University of South Carolina
