Gothic Romanced synopsis
The dark, destructive and brutal elements of Gothicfiction have traditionally been seen in opposition to the idealism of colorful romance. In this innovative study, Fred Putting re-evaluates the relationship between these two types in order to draw convergent shifts from popular and literary stories with cultural theories, consumption and the representation of science.
Gothic traces the history of Gothic and Romantic writings from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to the present day. It examines the ways in which these species are compatible with the process of historical modernization - Gothic represents the negative aspects of vice and barbarism that accompanied changing parameters of civilization, while romance clings to traditional values, literature and sentiments.
The book explains how these species evolved together with cultural transformations and postmodernist theories, blending the dual between the sacred and the pedantic.
The romantic and gothic flask of Mary Shelley, Anne Rice and Gray Aztray is considered by Alien and Star Trek.
It runs a wide and comprehensive exploration of the public boundaries, including Gothic novels, romantic poetry, literary landmarks, popular fantasy horror, cyberpunk and science fiction.
