Continuing the University of Wales Press’s acclaimed series of explorations of the Gothic and its legacy, Twentieth-Century Gothic focuses on the continuing presence of the gothic in the long twentieth century, from The Turn of the Screw to Sarah Waters’s The Little Stranger, with looks along the way at the work of Clive Barker, Angela Carter, Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling, and more. Addressing the question of why we are fascinated by ghosts, demons, and monsters of all sorts, despite the professed rationality of our society, Armitt shows how such stories of these supernatural creatures can serve as an outlet for deep-rooted fears about continuing problems in contemporary society.
