Mae Patrick McGrath yn ffigwr allweddol wrth ystyried twf y diddordeb mewn llenyddiaeth Gothig, ac mae'r gyfrol hon yn cynnig gwerthusiad o'i gyfraniad creadigol i barhad y traddodiad Gothig yn yr unfed ganrif ar hugain.

Following his co-edited volume The New Gothic in 1991, Patrick McGrath has also been a key figure in the resurgence of interest in the Gothic. This new book offers readings of McGrath's fiction informed by recent scholarship and evaluates his creative contribution to the continuation of the Gothic tradition into the twenty-first century.
‘McGrath’s novels are peopled by dysfunctional characters and his complex narrations demand much of the reader’ writes Sue Zlosnik, who holds the chair in Gothic Literature at Manchester Metropolitan University. In reviewing this work, whose subject matter is the prolific writer of the weird and not so wonderful, Patrick McGrath, I too have found much to stretch the mind. Zlosnik is a sophisticated academic who, in the pages of this book, explores and scrutinises the different contexts within McGrath’s work, this being one of a series of critical revisions of Gothic authors.

There is little doubt that there are few in the literary field who have not read or at the very least heard of Patrick McGrath, who has proved himself to be a major influence in the resurgence of Gothic fiction. In this scholarly work, Zlosnik shows how he has developed as a master of the genre, though apparently McGrath himself is none too happy with the label ‘Gothic’; maybe this is due to its common definition, which Collins English dictionary gives as ‘gloomy’ and ‘grotesque’.

In the space available it is hard to sum up the critical revisions of Patrick McGrath, but I would not hesitate to recommend this text not only to anyone with an academic interest in him but also to those curious about the psyche of one of the creators of this fictional genre.

Gwybodaeth Bellach:
One of the most successful and critically acclaimed authors in Britain, Patrick McGrath has also been a key figure in the recent resurgence of interest in the Gothic. This book, the first full-length study of McGrath and his work, looks at McGrath's writing through the lens of the Gothic, showing how he has pushed the boundaries of the genre, using the conventional trappings of the Gothic in creative, even parodic new ways.

Drawn in part from interviews with McGrath, some previously unpublished, the book offers readings of McGrath's fiction informed by recent scholarship and sets McGrath's work in the context of the Gothic tradition and his own times. It also evaluates his creative contribution to the continuation of the Gothic tradition into the twenty-first century and helps the reader understand McGrath's own sense of his identity as a writer.
