Description:
At the height of the Victorian period, a passion for Gothic style swept England and spread far beyond. Gothic architecture, associated with the social and cultural ideals of the Middle Ages, was seen as a means of remaking the modern world.

In this lucid exposition, Chris Brooks unravels the layers of meaning that Gothic held for its many re inventors: from the political uses of Gothic history in the seventeenth century to Barry and Pugin's Houses of Parliament in the mid-nineteenth.
