Goddu traces the development of the female, southern, and African-American gothic in literature between the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, placing in a new historical context Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, Hawthorne's The Blithedale Romance, Alcott's ghost stories, and Jacobs's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.

Teresa A. Goddu is assistant professor of English at Vanderbilt University, where she was a fellow of the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities.
