Urban Gothic of the Second World War

A newly published book by the highly regarded Sara Wasson of Ediburgh Napier University Literature and Culture department, examines in fascinating detail the role of the Gothic Second World War literature.

Urban Gothic of the Second World War makes frequent references to Mervyn Peake throughout the text, and with reproductions of some of the drawings and several salient extracts from his poems, this engaging publication adds a fresh, academic, but enlightening viewpoint as to how the writer, poet and artist is seen.
