Synopsis of Gothic Reader: A Critical Anthology:

The Gothic Reader compiled to accompany the Tate Gallery’s ‘Gothic Nightmares’ show in 2006, brings together texts and images from the origins of Gothic art and writing up to the 20th century. It is the first publication to present the Gothic through both the visual arts and literature, helping to establish a new framework for its analysis and appreciation.

Writers represented include Ann Radcliffe, Mary Shelley, and Horace Walpole; artists include William Blake, Henry Fuseli, and J.M.W. Turner. The anthology encompasses novels, essays and criticism, letters and memoirs, and pieces from contemporary newspapers and magazines, in an engaging, stimulating book for the general reader.

Martin Myrone is a curator at Tate, author of Henry Fuseli in the British Artists series and editor of Gothic Nightmares. Christopher Frayling is Rector of the Royal College of Art and Chairman of the Arts Council. His many publications include Vampyres: Lord Byron to Count Dracula and Nightmare: Birth of Horror.
