Summary
"Le Fanu's Gothic explores the relationship between readers and text across the whole span of Sheridan Le Fanu's career, giving due weight to his late, often unprinted, romances, and placing his early work of the 1830s in context. Sage includes chapters on three of Le Fanu's most popular works - Carmilla, The House by the Churchyard, and Uncle Silas - and traces the growth of the author's hybrid forms which mingle satire and comedy with Gothic horror, re-reading his later 'female-centred' romances."--Jacket
