Formatted Abstract/Summary
In the prefaces to their fictional texts, and in their theoretical, critical and personal writings, authors of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century reflect upon their participation in and contribution to the discursive site that is the Gothic. This level of critical engagement and interaction stemmed from an acute awareness of the emerging nature of professional writing, and of eighteenth century politics of reading and reception. Gothic authors used to their advantage developments in publication and circulation for the construction of literary networks and the collective creation of their Gothic world. Using the exchanges between three early Gothic authors as evidence, this paper aims to assess the role of collaboration in the Gothic tradition. The recognition of a critical Gothic community whose discourse surrounded and informed creative production is significant to our understanding of the development, progression and decay of the Gothic genre, as it brings into question the idea of the Gothic as an ‘other’ and its development as oppositional, eclectic or isolated.
