The articles in this volume discuss specific ways in which
the Gothic transgresses boundaries, be they historical,
spatial, national, aesthetic, generic, modal, medial or
sexual. Offering a wide range in every respect – from
`Proto‘ to `Post-Gothic‘, from mythical to digital, from
national to `Globalgothic‘, from metropolitan to
`EcoGothic‘, from traditional to `Candygothic‘, from novel
to film and from Shakespeare to Steampunk – this collection
aims to enrich as well as extend the scholarly debate on the
Gothic as a multi-faceted mode of expression that goes
beyond limits and, much like a vampire, constantly refreshes
itself by feeding on the lifeblood of topical issues.
