How do you define 'classic gothics'?

Some put Stephen King in "gothic" category? Really?

In fact, I've often come across such a thing, and in fact Stephen King as a writer of modern horror experienced the influence of Gothic Prose. But he has other images and a different set of topics. In fact, analyzing what is a gothic after the 1830s, you can easily sit in a puddle. So Lovecraft in his essay on the horror literature calls Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu and Rebert Lewis Stevenson representatives of the "half Gothic, half Romantic-moralistic school," while Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde for him are representatives of other directions. And today many of them and Lovecraft himself consider Lovecraft to be a Gothic school.
