If you are really interested in Gothic Wanderers, it is the very best and the most complete study and analysis that has ever been done on them and I think it is impossible to really know about Gothic literature without having read Tichelaar book. I have decided not to finish it for the time being because I want to read more of the books which are mentioned in this study, but what I have read so far fascinates me!! I have the actual book, on paper I mean, not the e-book and I must say it is really worth the money!!

The first of these is the creation of the Gothic Wanderer. In this the author defines what he means by this term and looks at the influence of the French Revolution, Paradise Lost, The Wandering Jew, gambling and Roscrucianism on the development of the Wanderer in Gothic literature.
- The Gothic wanderer : from transgression to redemption : Gothic literature from 1794 - present;
- The Gothic Wanderer: From Transgression to Redemption; Gothic Literature from 1794 - Present?
The second part focuses on the subversion of the traditional Gothic Wanderer, looking at the Wandering Jewess in Fanny Burney's work, as well as the more existential Wanderer such as Frankenstein's Monster. The third part focuses on the theme of redemption and includes an analysis of Dicken's A Tale of Two Cities, vampire literature such as Glenarvon, The Vampyre and, of course, Dracula, and finally brings us up to the present day with the Twilight phenomenon.
This book is perhaps of most value to those studying the Gothic novel as part of a Literature degree. It contains a number of interesting points and makes considered comparisons to various authors and their writings, as well as historical events such as the French Revolution.
