'The castle has become synonymous with large, sprawling buildings and has been used as a reference point in other works of fiction.'

I'm not necessarily questioning the validity of this statement, but it does need to cite a few examples. 19:12, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Busy at the moment, so can't look it up, but Terry Pratchett compares the Unseen University to Gormenghast in one of the early Discworld novels. sheridan (talk) 21:15, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Lancre Castle is also described as looking as if it had been built by an architect who'd heard of Gormenghast but didn't have the budget. The Keep of the Four Worlds in Zelanzy's Chronicles of Amber is also compared to Gormenghast by Merlin. (talk)Roxana —Preceding undated comment added 20:24, 20 May 2009 (UTC).

Image:Gormenghast castle.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
