"In my writing, whether on English romanticism or gothicism, I try to convey some of the excitement I feel while reading literature," Diane Long Hoeveler once told CA. "I am most interested in the pattern of meaning that emerges when one studies the images and symbols in a work. Those deep structures, myth and psychosexual obsessions, express the universal fears and desires we all experience and yet never have the luxury to analyze."
