Gothic Afterlives: Radcliffe’s Literary Precursors, Rivals, and Descendants

(Proposed special session for the 2017 NASSR conference)

Since the mid-1990s, a number of studies have not only extended the years that “Romanticism” encompasses as a literary and cultural period but also suggested that classic gothic literature (1764-1824) holds a significant place within Romantic studies. Thanks to presses like Broadview and Valancourt, a host of classic gothic novels by Clara Reeve, Sophia Lee, Charlotte Smith, William Godwin, Regina Maria Roche, Charlotte Dacre, Percy Shelley, and others that were once out of print and available only in special collections are now easily accessible.

In her 2014 A Cultural History of the Irish Novel, 1790-1829, Claire Connolly declares that a major aim is, and must be, ‘to restore seriousness and nuance to our understanding of the Irish fiction of the romantic period’, which her criticism seeks to achieve by ‘refus[ing] or at least redirect[ing] readings that treat the novels as so many failed efforts to contain the hectic world of early nineteenth-century Ireland’ (Connolly 1).
