'Russian Gothic' as a term has only recently begun to enjoy any real currency in critical studies of Russian literature. Gothic novels did occasionally achieve publication in Russian translation in the later part of the Soviet era. There is now, in post-Soviet Russia, a 'Gothic novel' series emanating from the Moscow publisher 'Terra'. Even the anthology entitled Russian 19th-century Gothic Tales, compiled by Valentin Korovin and published in Moscow in 1984, however, seems to have acquired that title for its English-language edition by chance. Russian Gothic can be said to derive principally from an amalgam of European influences: the English Gothic novel, the tales of Hoffmann, the French fantastique and frenetique traditions, and the various schools of European idealist and esoteric thought.
