Description

This book offers a powerful and new consideration of the nature of the Gothic. It demonstrates how all of the discursive traditions associated with the English word "Gothic" make language interact with migration, collection and display, balance, and rediscovery. Accidental Migrations makes a notable contribution to the theorization and reconsideration of eighteenth-century historiography. [Amazon.com]
