How do you define 'classic gothics'?
GothicLover Wrote:There is a confusion regarding the word "gothic" because of its recent adoption by those who call their music gothic and/or those who dress all in black with pale white faces. I would suspect that those groups gravitate more toward horror gothics than gothic romances. I believe the intent of this forum is to discuss gothic romance novels.

Whoa.  Hold on there.  I listen to gothic music, but I don't walk around in black with a pale face.  I'm in auditing!  AND, the assumption that certain people only like certain books is stereotyping.  So because I like gothic music, I am more likely to only like horror gothic?  People with gothic interests read many things, including beach books, literature, nonfiction etc.  

Having jumped into this discussion, I enjoy some of the older gothic books.  I guess I would like those books with strong heroines instead of frightened victims.  Those can be hard to find although I would appreciate any suggestions.
