Gotische Literatur , die häufig antike und mittelalterliche Züge aufweist und den Leser in eine längst vergessene, romantische Welt entführt, bedient sich meist Geschichten und Erzählungen in deren Mittelpunkt Schlösser, alte Herrenhäuser, unerklärliche Phänomene und spukende Geister oder Stimmen vorkommen. Oftmals haben diese Erzählungen Ähnlichkeiten mit Märchen, Fabeln und Legenden, und es erscheint dem Leser häufig fraglich, inwiefern sich das Reale mit dem Irrealen, das Natürliche mit dem Übernatürlichen kreuzt. Abrams beweist dies mit dem folgenden Eintrag in word list of Literary phrases: “Authors of such novels set their tales within the medieval interval, usually in a dark fort replete with dungeons, subterranean passages, and sliding panels, and made ample use of ghosts, mysterious disappearances, and different sensational and supernatural occurrences; […] their valuable target used to be to adapt chilling terror through exploiting secret, cruelty, and a number of horrors”.
Ergänzend erklärt Abrams: “The time period „Gothic“ has additionally been prolonged to indicate a kind of fiction which lacks the medieval surroundings yet develops a brooding surroundings of gloom or terror, represents occasions that are uncanny, or macabre, or melodramatically violent, and sometimes bargains with aberrant mental states”.
Bei Joyce Carol Oates’ finden sich vorwiegend die traditionellen gotischen Elemente in den Romanen Bellefleur, A Bloodsmoor Romance und Mysteries of Winterthurn. Joanne Creighton sagt über Oates, sei ”[…] probably the most critical and highbrow of up to date writers, whose specified combination of compelling, hallucinatory realism with „complex propositions in regards to the nature of character“ areas nice calls for at the reader.“
In diesen phantastischen Romanen geben sich übernatürliche Erscheinungen, Familienflüche, alte Häuser, Schlösser und Klöster, vampirähnliche Gestalten, Wahnsinn, Liebe und Leidenschaft, Vergewaltigung, Entführung und ein Übermaß an Aristokratie ein Stelldichein.
