Gothic as a genre has recently experienced a sharp rise in literary prestige, due largely, though not exclusively, to feminism nowadays.

Beneath its trappings of ghosts, monsters, and psychopaths, quality Gothic fiction asks important philosophical questions about human nature. It can be an invaluable aesthetic tool for helping teens develop their own moral compasses.
