These essays identify the Gothic tradition as the cultural context for understanding texts dealing explicitly with terror and horror and works expressing Moore's interest in magic and psychogeography. Core elements from Gothic aesthetics are evident in the structure and atmosphere of many of Moore's works. The socio-political dimensions of Moore's work are brought into focus through an appreciation of the Gothic's capacity to encompass both the sublime and the ridiculous.
