    Le Gothic provides a valuable corrective to the idea that Gothic fiction is mainly an Anglo-American phenomenon. Charting numerous influences and appropriations that took place between Europe and America between the late eighteenth and the twentieth centuries, it shows how Gothic writing flourished by crossing national and linguistic boundaries. It traces the importance of revolutionary Paris in the evolution of Gothic and explores cross-channel fertilizations and transatlantic exchanges in film and literature. Opening up new contexts, the contributors offer fresh perspectives on the work of Rousseau, de Sade, Charles Brockden Brown, James Hogg, Victor Hugo, Gaston Leroux, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Huysmans, Machen, T.S. Eliot, Henry James, Elizabeth Bowen, Pierrette Fleutiaux and Angela Carter, while considering Gothic writing in relation to Modernism and modernisation; the city; translation; gender; religion and postcolonialism.
