"There is no escape." Horace Walpole and the terrifying rise of the Gothic | OUPblog

"There is no escape." Horace Walpole and the terrifying rise of the Gothic | OUPblog | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it
This year is the 250th anniversary of Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto, first published on Christmas Eve 1764 as a seasonal ghost story. The Castle of Otranto is often dubbed the "first Gothic novel" due to Walpole describing it as a "Gothic story," but for him the Gothic meant very different things from what it might do today.

Anne Rice: The Interview with the Vampire novelist on her daughter's death, living through her own funeral and the dangers of Oxford

Anne Rice: The Interview with the Vampire novelist on her daughter's death, living through her own funeral and the dangers of Oxford | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it
I was a sad, broken and despairing atheist when I wrote 'Interview with the Vampire' [in 1973, after the death of her daughter from leukaemia]. I pitched myself into writing and made up a story about vampires. I didn't know it at the time but it was all about my daughter, the loss of her and the need to go on living when faith is shattered. But the lights do come back on, no matter how dark it seems, and I'm sensitive now, more than ever, to the beauty of the world – and more resigned to living

The New Southern Gothic

Instead of vampires and stone castles, however, Southern Gothic offers up dilapidated plantation houses and rotted shacks, eccentric or loony characters, grotesquery galore, and a general sense of entropy that is mined for both comic and tragic effect. The declining southern aristos of classic Southern-Gothic-Land resemble their romantic vampiric predecessors, pining in putrid mansions, driven mad by inbreeding and the loss of once-mythical fortunes sustained by brutal parasitic economies. The specter of slavery haunts the imaginations of Southern Gothic's earlier white practitioners, of course, writers who mystify, other, and stereotype African American characters.
