Gothic Film in the ‘40s: Doomed Romance and Murderous Melodrama | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

Representações das cidades em ruínas de H.P. Lovecraft (Dora Nunes Gago)

Representações das cidades em ruínas de H.P. Lovecraft (Dora Nunes Gago) | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it
"A produção literária de Howard Philips Lovecraft (Providence, Rhode Island,1890-1937) inscreve-se no domínio da Literatura Fantástica, aproximando-se de Edgar A.

Estes expressam, frequentemente, a pequenez, a solidão e insignificância do ser humano, no seio de um universo infinito, amoral, hostil e desprovido de significado. Neste contexto, o medo é gerado não…

O Gótico e o Orientalista: uma leitura de Vathek, de William Beckford (André Astorino) | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it
"Vathek, primeiro romance do escritor inglês William Beckford publicado em 1786, é considerado por muitos uma obra singular. Combinando certos elementos dos chamados romances góticos com uma ambientação oriental, a narrativa coloca diversos problemas a respeito de sua complexa natureza estilística. Muitos estudiosos já tentaram associar a obra a alguma dessas tradições de forma definitiva.…
