Gothic Forms of Feminine Fiction is a study of the powers of Gothic in late twentieth-century fiction and film. Susanne Becker argues that the Gothic, two hundred years after it emerged, exhibits unchanged vitality in our media age. Today’s globalized entertainment culture, relying on daily soaps, confession shows and media icons like Princess Diana, is reflected in the emotional trajectory of the Gothic’s violence, eroticism and sentimental excess.
