About this book


Looking at the gothic in Victorian fiction, the development of cinema and Hitchcock's Vertigo , this book explores the contained or repressed desires of both characters and plots which defy direct representation, resulting in obsession, fetishism and displacement engendering a novel account of the way in which the gothic becomes internalized.
