It is a pity that a book which contains many illuminating and provocative readings of selected 'classic' Gothic texts should begin with a misleading, though dramatic, generalization. Wanting, presumably, to forge a connection between the 'Rise of the Gothic Novel' and the very 'Nature of Gothic' itself, Maggie Kilgour opens by stating that: 'One of the powerful images conjured up by the words "gothic novel" is that of a shadowy form rising from a mysterious place' 3.

A pithy, dramatic, and evocative opening but, unfortunately, this undeniably popular image is cinematic rather than literary. Dracula does not creep memorably from his coffin except on screen; the true moment of horror for Frankenstein is the movement from terrible dream to living nightmare when he awakes to find his creation peering down at him, rather than the animation of a Karlovian monster.

Kilgour, in truly Gothic style, has shifted the context in order to produce an effect. The Rise of the Gothic Novel. Author: Kate Behr. Date: Sept.

One of the central images conjured up by the gothic novel is that of a shadowy spectre slowly rising from a mysterious abyss. In The Rise of the Gothic Novel, Maggie Kilgour argues that the ghost of the gothic is now resurrected in the critical methodologies which investigate it for the revelation of buried cultural secrets. In this cogent analysis of the rise and fall of the gothic as a popular form, Kilgour juxtaposes the writings of William Godwin with Mary Wollstonecraft, and Ann Radcliffe with Matthew Lewis. She concludes with a close reading of the quintessential gothic novel, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. An impressive and highly original study, The Rise of the Gothic Novel is an invaluable contribution to the continuing literary debates which surround this influential genre.
