The Gothic with Professor John Bowen

 

  • Horace Walpole imagines a gigantic armoured fist and now we have Gothic fiction
  • Wild and strange landscapes
  • Conversely, imprisoned characters
  • Relationship between the modern world and the past
  • Past violently erupts in present and deranges it
  • Perverse, weird, dangerous sex!
