Summary
"George Eliot and the Gothic Novel tracks George Eliot's reading of gothic and sensational literature and her responses to them in her own works. Royce Mahawatte focuses on the frightening, startling, and melodramatic elements of Eliot's fiction, placing Eliot within a culture of mid-Victorian sensationalism and highlighting the connections between her and authors like Mary Braddon, Wilkie Collins, and Edward Bulwer Lytton. Mahawatte argues that suspenseful and popular tropes play a significant role in Eliot's literary ethics and creativity and that our understanding of the author's writing needs to be broadened to include her extensive and complex engagement with the gothic tradition."--Publisher's website
