Gothic Metaphysics

From Alchemy to the Anthropocene

Jodey Castricano

‘Gothic Metaphysics offers a bracing revaluation of Gothic values for the twenty-first century. Here, the Gothic – long the repository of arcane knowledges dismissed by scientific materialism – offers a mode of thought essential to our survival in the Anthropocene … realigning the Gothic with Jung, alchemy and quantum physics. This is indispensable reading not only on the Gothic but also on the state of things as they currently are and hope to be.’
Professor Joel Faflak, Western University, London, ON

South Asian Gothic

Haunted cultures, histories and media

Edited by Katarzyna Ancuta and Deimantas Valančiūnas

‘South Asian Gothic is much more than a survey of how the Gothic has developed in a specific geographical region. It sets an agenda for future scholarship through its exposure of unfamiliar but compelling texts, its open-minded approach to the genre across a commendable range of media, and its sensitive response to the vibrant cultures of South Asia. This is an essential text for any scholar engaging with today’s globalgothic.’
- Professor William Hughes, University of Macau

The History of Wales in Twelve Poems

M. Wynn Thomas

‘With style, energy and sureness of touch … we are guided through the complex story of Welsh identity from Maelgwn Gwynedd to Mark Drakeford, weaving political and cultural themes together in a vivid tapestry. There are very few pages that do not offer fresh insights, even for those who know their Welsh history well. The poems chosen are an excellent mix of the expected and the unexpected.’
