Urban Shadows | The Gothic Imagination

Urban Shadows | The Gothic Imagination | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

The use of spaces to comment on human experiences or as mood setting devices is a literary tradition that is present even at the beginning of the Gothic tradition. Castles with turrets, gargoyles and a forbidding exterior that holds silk hangings buffeted by the wind, dribbled candles that flicker in the gusts of an ever present wind, and grand doors that squeal on rusty hinges – these are all aspects that could be argued to be classic Gothic ambience. The terror of not knowing what hides in the shadows, the knowing that there is something lurking, the setting is always of great importance when dealing with the Gothic. However, it is interesting to note, that the setting has changed over time. China Mieville’s The City & The City is in many ways an urban exploration of this Gothic ambience. Even though his fiction is mostly classified as “weird fiction” or “soft science fiction”, or in the case of The City & The City which is predominantly seen by the mainstream as an existential thriller, there is much to be said about Mieville’s invocation of an urban Gothic sentiment.
