bookbar-gothics

“The world of Gothic fiction is characterized by a chronic sense of apprehension and the premonition of impending but unidentified disaster. The Gothic world is the fallen world, the vision of fallen man, living in fear and alienation, haunted by images of his mythic expulsion, by its repercussions, and by an awareness of his unavoidable wretchedness….Gothic heroes and heroines are on their own, stumbling alone, sometimes in foreign countries, through appalling complexities of decision and action, obliged to find their own solutions or go under; estrangement from family ties is their normal condition….Protagonists are frequently orphans, or they are foundlings or adopted, their family origins mysterious.” (Ann B. Tracy, The Gothic Novel 1790-1830: Plot Summaries and Index Motifs).
