Alison Rudd provides a comparative analysis of the way the gothic has provided writers from the Caribbean, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand with a means to express the anxieties of postcolonial experience and the traumatic legacies of colonialism. She covers a diverse terrain of well-known contemporary writers, including Derek Walcott, Shani Mootoo, Margaret Atwood, Peter Carey, and Keri Hulme.
