Queer Others in Victorian Gothic
Distributed for University of Wales Press
“Ardel Haefele-Thomas’s Queer Others in Victorian Gothic applies queer and postcolonial theory to gothic fiction—with surprising results. In richly historicized contexts, the author reveals refined explorations of otherness in Victorian literature, as well as complicated empathies and tolerances that unsettle our critical assumptions.”
