A Geography of Victorian Gothic Fiction challenges the prevailing view that 'psychology' explains the Gothic. Mighall offers original readings of familiar texts, from Dickens to Stoker, Wilkie Collins to Conan Doyle; but also a rich store of original sources, from European travelogues to sexological textbooks, from ecclesiastic histories to pamphlets on the perils of self-abuse. The book aims to provide the first full-length historical survey of Victorian
Gothic fiction.
