Literature Meme - [1/2] Literary Movements - The Gothic
A mode originating in England in the late eighteenth century, gothic literature became wildly popular in the nineteenth century. Its name comes from a setting common to the mode - that of the gothic castle, one of the medieval horror of hidden dungeons haunted by vampires, ghosts, and monsters.
