The Dying Text: Learning from Scottish Gothic | The Gothic Imagination

The Dying Text: Learning from Scottish Gothic | The Gothic Imagination | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

While death is self-evidently a primary theme of Gothic in all its iterations, mourning is no less so. Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho, for instance, ends with the following curious formulation: ‘And, if the weak hand, that has recorded this tale, has, by its scenes, beguiled the mourner of one hour of sorrow, or, by its moral, taught him to sustain it – the effort, however humble, has not been vain, nor is the writer unrewarded’ (p. 672). Reading a Gothic novel may be useful diversion, but it may just as much provide a model for mourning. Gothic teaches us something about our own mourning: it has the potential to give us our deaths back to us. For Radcliffe the relation between text and reader, both within and without the given narrative, becomes primary. As I’ve tried to suggest in the previous posts on Michel Faber and John Burnside, this desire to investigate the nature of presentation remains central to contemporary Scottish Gothic; the question is not only how a text presents the world, but how in presenting itself it changes its own relation to the world.
