Goth is a term for a subculture that appeared in the late 1970’s as a form of punk. Today the Goth movement is hard to define because it takes many forms.

The Goth’s approach to life is generally based on a mythical reconstruction of the Gothic era (e.g. black clothing and the game Dungeons and Dragons) as a response to contemporary issues. Some Goths are optimistic and explore the arts, others tend to focus on anger, brooding and darkness.

And yet others have a softer, more indirect ideological influence. They take up the Goth look for mainstream style and fashion reasons, and in so doing, arguably shape rather than challenge the status quo.

One thought on “Goth

  1. Pretty good; but from my experience, Goth doesn’t have anything to do with anger or Dungeons and Dragons…?
