"Houston's assessment of the connections between economic and literary discourse is a welcome addition to current work in this burgeoning area of research...the real strength of From Dickens to Dracula is that it provides a fresh perspective through its consideration of how financial panic is figured in nineteenth-century fiction, and is thus a valuable addition to scholarship in this field." Dickens Quarterly Gill Ballinger, University of the West England
Gail Turley Houston examines how the language and imagery of economics are transformed in Gothic fiction, and traces literary and uncanny elements in economic writings of the period. This stimulating interdisciplinary book reveals that the worlds of Victorian economics and Gothic fiction, seemingly separate, actually complemented and enriched each other.
