This chapter elaborates a praxis for reading the capitalist world-ecology in Gothic literature, exploring how literary form can embed the social-ecological contradictions of capitalism. It offers a case study of 'global ecoGothic', reading the viral excrescences and monstrous transformations of human bodies into vegetable matter in Rana Dasgupta's Tokyo Cancelled as Gothic apparitions that register the world-ecology, particularly the ecological regimes corresponding to neoliberalism and financialization. The chapter outlines the elements of the literary methodology, which employs a geographical-materialist approach to texts informed by a world-systems-inflected environmental history of the ecological phases of capitalism. It focuses on four exemplary stories, two set in post-industrial European cores, and the remaining in centres of development in the global South. In Dasgupta's version of the ecoGothic, the resolution of social-ecological contradictions is complicated, producing ambivalent reconciliations that neither redeem the violence which has gone before nor expel the monstrous and reassert paternal authority.
