About this product
- DescriptionEighteenth-century England witnessed major social and ecomic changes, including the commodification of property, person and text through legal containments-enclosure, coverture, primogeniture, copyright. The English Gothic text responded with tropes that worked to dispel the assurances of possession-the contested castle, the beleaguered yet enduring woman, the haunting ghost, the disjointed narrative-warning that seemingly mundane codes of ownership have menacing implications, such as the civil death of women through marriage. This book explores the masterplot of the English Gothic text as a response to the Enlightenment's rational certainty regarding possession of self, property and narrative.
- Author BiographyRuth Bienstock Anolik teaches at Villanova University in Pennsylvania, USA and writes extensively on the Gothic mode. Her articles have been published in Modern Language Studies, Studies in Jewish Literature, and a number of other journals and collections.
