Queering Gothic in the Romantic Age is a provocative study of how the 'penetrating eye' of the Gothic villain is a metaphor for the gaze that inscribes and polices desire in Gothic writing, especially given the vigilance over same-sex desire in the Romantic period. Biographical and critical scrutiny about the sexuality of writers like Walpole, Beckford, Lewis, Godwin and Byron is less important than how such narratives of suspicion, interpretation of the body and gender help us to understand the queerness of Gothic.
