Gothic today

From the 18th century onwards Gothic came to mean grim and sinister often with Germanic overtones.

It was and still is a theme in popular novels as well as literature especially those within the horror genre.

It is also a theme in fashion and culture with a certain group of individuals, especially those in their younger years, choosing to dress in a manner called Gothic, this is often usually associated with certain rock groups and their fan base.

Whatever the evolutionary phases of the term Gothic it is clear that it has retained a certain association with a manner that connotes everything else but joy and bears a lot of historical significance as well.
