PortraitFrederick S. Frank is Professor Emeritus of English at Allegheny College, Meadville, Pennsylvania. He is also the author of Guide to the Gothic (Scarecrow, 1984) and Guide to the Guide II (Scarecrow, 1995).
PressestimmenFrank is skilled at elucidating the best in critical commentary by summarizing the point of departure that makes each source valuable to an analysis of Gothic literature. Annotations are clear and unpedantic...Recommended for large public and college and university libraries. Booklist 20050501 Faculty will find particularly useful the lists of anthologies and a section on teaching gothic fiction...[Frank's] expertise shines through his annotations, to each of which he adds personal commentary, summarizing arguments, establishing a critical framework, and calling authors to task for inaccuracies. Although the guide's audience is limited, no work rivals its scope and detail, and scholars of gothic literature will find it indispensable. Highly recommended. CHOICE Libraries that already own GGI and GGII will certainly want to obtain Guide to the Gothic III to supplement an already excellent guide to selected works appropriate for reader advice and collection development as well as scholarly research in Gothic genre. Reference Reviews This volume is an excellent and definitive reference work on this topic. American Reference Books Annual Frank has been in the business of Gothic for over a quarter of a century. For that reason alone scholars owe him a huge debt...The bibliographer notes that of the 5,706 entries in the GG III, about ten percent represent dissertations or master's theses. Frank's work is surely significant here. He made those dissertations possible, or at least made many of them notably easier to finish. This two-volume update of two earlier Guides (also by Frank, 1984, 1995) is a labyrinthian, Gothic read, full of interesting turns and twists. Gothic Studies ...Frank's comprehensive survey provides valuable support for the study of Gothic, horror, fantastic and genre literature. Lawrence Looks At Books This two-volume guide offers researchers and students a comprehensive bibliographical survey of Gothic scholarship and criticism of the twentieth and early twenty- first century. Over 1,600 new, annotated entries covering 1994-2003 are included, along with more than 4,000 shortened entries from the previous volumes. New studies on Anne Rice and Angela Carter are included, as well as sections on Gothic chapbooks, blue books, shilling shockers, pre-Gothicism and graveyard verse, classical English authors and the Gothic, Gothic revival architecture, the doppelganger in Gothic literature, and anthologies and collections of Gothic fiction. Other sections feature French, German, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Japanese, Australian, and Indian/Pakistani Gothic fiction to reflect the global nature of contemporary Gothic studies. Frank also incorporates a new section on teaching Gothic fiction with television and audiovisual material, and directs readers to pertinent websites and Internet resources. Reference and Research Book News ...tons of interesting things to delve into in an easy-to-understand format. The almost addictively easy entries to read through kept me busy for months, and still have me looking up the more esoteric critical entries. Green Man Review
