(Dis)locations: Post-Industrial Gothic in David Peace's Red Riding Quartet
Shaw, Katy (2012) (Dis)locations: Post-Industrial Gothic in David Peace's Red Riding Quartet The Review of Contemporary Fiction, 32 (3).Full text not available from this repository.
This article explores how and why Peace’s Red Riding Quartet represents the North of England as both a place apart from the rest of the UK and the logical representation of its Gothic underside during the 1970s and 80s. Together, the four novels represent an effective no-man’s land, a Yorkshire in transition and in dispute. Re-inscribing fresh meanings on an area historically defined by associations with the Brontës, the industrial revolution and heavy industry, the Quartet establishes a new post-industrial ‘mythology of the North’.
