It’s time for another round of Into It/Over It, the High Altitude Edition. The point of this type of post is to point out a negative and replace it with a positive (and sometimes just point out positives). What does a picture of this awesome-yet-undisclosed location have to do with Gothic anything? If you have ever read any Gothic literature (Frankenstein, The Castle of Otranto, Carmilla, Dracula, et cetera), they can be read as travel journals, with significant chunks of text devoted to describing landscapes and characters’ travels. I re-read Carmilla on a weekend’s camping trip, and the descriptions of Styria (region in modern-day Austria and Slovenia) reminded me of the critical angle of Gothic literature as travel journals.
