How do you define 'classic gothics'?
In order to make this forum less confusing, I think we need to start defining what we mean when we refer to different types of Gothics. If everyone has a different idea, we cannot understand each other.

The section on "Classic Gothic" per the administrator states "early and standard works of Gothic". This sounds to me like it is defining it in terms of the more academic Gothic books. Perhaps we should ask for a separate section devoted to discussion of those Gothic books most of us currently on this forum prefer. But we would need to come up with a new subcategory. I've mentioned a few that might not be palatable to some, but any suggestions are welcomed.

(As for "Rebecca", I believe we should have a group discussion of that book. I loved it when I first read it but that was about 20 years ago. I don't know how I would feel about it reading it now. As GothicLover says, some may not consider "Rebecca" a classic, strictly in academic terms.)
