Publisher's description: This volume analyzes the effects of British gothic novels and historical romances on American art and architecture in the romantic era. Through the work and writings of such figures as Washington Irving, James Fenimore Cooper, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Thomas Jefferson, and many more, Kerry Dean Carso reveals a surprisingly extensive symbiotic relationship between the arts in America and gothic literature in Britain -- while also offering new insight into a relatively understudied era in American architecture.
