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

to improve how to recognize the presence of the cyborg—one that's right now
aesthetical and ethical—so as to allow people and cyborgs to narrate one another on
equal phrases. therefore, “cyborgothic” is being required as a literary try to current the
age of posthumanism that's now not anthropocentric.
