About The Book
The Gothic Wanderer Rises Eternal in Popular Literature
From the horrors of sixteenth century Italian castles to twenty-first century plagues, from the French Revolution to the liberation of Libya, Tyler R. Tichelaar takes readers on far more than a journey through literary history. The Gothic Wanderer is an exploration of man’s deepest fears, his eff orts to rise above them for the last two centuries, and how he may be on the brink finally of succeeding.
Tichelaar examines the figure of the Gothic wanderer in such well-known Gothic novels as “The Mysteries of Udolpho,” “Frankenstein,” and “Dracula,” as well as lesser known works like Fanny Burney’s “The Wanderer,” Mary Shelley’s “The Last Man,” and Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s “Zanoni.” He also finds surprising Gothic elements in classics like Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities” and Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “Tarzan of the Apes.” From Matthew Lewis’ “The Monk” to Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight,” Tichelaar explores a literary tradition whose characters refl ect our greatest fears and deepest hopes. Readers will find here the revelation that not only are we all Gothic wanderers — but we are so only by our own choosing.
Acclaim for “The Gothic Wanderer”

— Diana DeLuca, Ph.D. and author of Extraordinary Things
“Make no mistake about it, The Gothic Wanderer is an important, well researched and comprehensive treatise on some of the world’s finest literature.”
