This panel invites papers investigating the slippery boundary between
Romanticism and popular gothic fiction from the late eighteenth and
early nineteenth centuries. Possible papers could examine gothic dramas
by seminal figures in Romantic poetry (Coleridge’s /Osorio/,
Wordsworth’s /Borderers/), the use of gothic motifs in Romantic poetry,
the appearance of Romantic poetry within gothic prose (in Radcliffe’s or
Smith’s novels), reception history and Romantic poets’ self-positioning
in relation to gothic writing, the gendering of these two simultaneous
movements, and personal relationships among these writers (Matthew
Lewis’s friendships with Scott and Byron). Papers with an inter-generic
or cultural history approach are especially welcome. Please send a brief
abstract to Ellen Malenas at malenas_at_virginia.edu.
