This dissertation considers the longer term convergence among gothic experiences and
humanism within the age of posthumanism and proposes “cyborgothic” as a brand new literary
genre that heralds that destiny. The convergence into account is already in

two fields, wondering the character of people and the remedy of such non-human

complications inherent in technology were dealt with in American society. The final
chapter proposes Marge Piercy’s He, She and Itas a related cyborgothic textual content, which attempts
to improve the way to recognize the presence of the cyborg—one that's instantaneously
aesthetical and ethical—so as to permit people and cyborgs to narrate one another on
equal phrases. therefore, “cyborgothic” is being required as a literary try and current the
age of posthumanism that's not anthropocentric.
