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.

Victor Sage judiciously and convincingly using different discursive contexts to shed light on the heritage from the Gothic of Victorian fiction.

Victor Sage always remains genuinely challenging

Victor Sage this book is a serious and well-documented contribution to the study of the Gothic mode, which sheds some fascinating light on what currently remains a really problematic area for the scholar; namely, the mysterious transition from the popular gene of the literary histories (1764-1820) to the survival and diffusion of the mode in Victorian texts ... It is Mighall's sharpness and detail which makes the book's anti-essentialism a real contribution to
the history of the Gothic in the nineteenth century.

B. F. Fisher, Choice, Sept. 00. He ... provides an excellent demonstration of the gothic foundations of detective fiction. Mighall's command of the primary and secondary literature makes for illuminating readings of many contributors to Victorian fiction, both great and small.

John Sutherland, Independent on Sunday 29/11/99 'an important and robustly argumentative definition of the Gothic. ... [It] redraws the critical map'.

Michael Newton, THES ... excellent book .. this is an original, thoughtful and ground-breaking book. No student of Victorian literature can afford to neglect it. Unusually for a critical book, it is also great fun
