Explore 'Terror and Wonder' at the British Library
1 Aug 2014

Gothic-themed display Terror and Wonder: The Gothic Imagination will be on show at the British Library in London from October 3rd this year.

Besides books and manuscripts, the exhibition will include Gothic art and other spine-tingling items, and is set to be displayed until January 20th next year.

Works relating to Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley, Angela Carter and Robert Louis Stevenson are among those planned to be put on show.

Said to be bigger than any other UK display on Gothic literature, its opening comes 250 years on from the debut of The Castle of Otranto, a haunting novel that spearheaded the Gothic genre.

"The exhibition will celebrate the many literary masterpieces produced in Britain ever since, as well as modern interpretations of the Gothic in pop culture today," organisers promise.

Visitors can find the Library on Euston Road, very near St Pancras train station.ADNFCR-408-ID-801739381-ADNFCR
