Is Rebecca a ghost story?

While you can technically consider Rebecca a ghost story, the ghosts aren’t supernatural — they’re simply figments of our nameless heroine’s fragile imagination, egged on by the vicious taunts of the vengeful Mrs. Danvers.

Maxim is totally gothic. He’s a prudish, brooding figure with sinister secrets, whose temper is always on the verge of erupting.
