Download and read online The Castle of Otranto in PDF and EPUB First published pseudonymously in 1764, The Castle of Otranto purported to be a translation of an Italian story of the time of the crusades. In it Walpole attempted, as he declared in the Preface to the second edition, `to blend the two kinds of romance: the ancient and the modern'. He gives us a series of catastrophes, ghostly interventions, revelations of identity, and exciting contests. Crammed with invention, entertainment, terror, and pathos, the novel was an immediate success and Walpole's own favourite among his numerous works. His friend, the poet Thomas Gray, wrote that he and his family, having read Otranto, were now `afraid to go to bed o'nights'. The novel is here reprinted from a text of 1798, the last that Walpole himself prepared for the press.

Download and read online The Castle of Otranto and The Mysterious Mother in PDF and EPUB This Broadview edition pairs the first Gothic novel with the first Gothic drama, both by Horace Walpole. Published on Christmas Eve, 1764, on Walpole’s private press at Strawberry Hill, his Gothicized country house, The Castle of Otranto became an instant and immediate classic of the Gothic genre as well as the prototype for Gothic fiction for the next two hundred years. Walpole’s brooding and intense drama, The Mysterious Mother, focuses on the protagonist’s angst over an act of incest with his mother, and includes the appearance of Father Benedict, Gothic literature’s first evil monk. Appendices in this edition include selections from Walpole’s letters, contemporary responses, and writings illustrating the aesthetic and intellectual climate of the period. Also included is Sir Walter Scott’s introduction to the 1811 edition of The Castle of Otranto.

Download and read online The Role of Women in Gothic Novels The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole The Italian by Ann Radcliffe Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Robert Maturin in PDF and EPUB Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2.0, University of Osnabruck, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: There are more than 50 years between "The Castle of Otranto" and "Melmoth the Wanderer." "The Castle of Otranto" was published 1764, "The Italian" 1797 and "Melmoth the Wanderer" 1820. It might be interesting that "The Castle of Otranto" was published in year of birth of Ann Radcliffe and "The Italian" has been published in the year Horace Walpole died. An incident of course, but an interesting one. "The Castle of Otranto" is set in the time between 1095 and 1243, "The Italian" is set in the 18th century and "Melmoth the Wanderer" covers an period of time from the late 17th century to the early 19th century. In the following work will find out especially about the women in the three mentioned novels. In which way are they presented, is there a stereotype of a gothic heroine and are there changes throughout the time referring to the date of publishing and writing? The first point will be a short definition of the term "Gothic" according to literature. The second point will be an introduction of the three authors. For a better understanding of their work and the possible differences a look at their biography is absolutely necessary for me. In order of publishing I will introduce Horace Walpole ("The Castle of Otranto"), Ann Radcliffe ("The Italian") and Charles Robert Maturin ("Melmoth the Wanderer"). Additional to some biographical dates I will give some information about their work and their style of writing. After introducing the authors I will concentrate on the novels and how women are described and presented. Which role do they play in the three novels? Is there something special about each woman in the texts? Here I will concentrate on some characteristics which are typical for gothic novels and not so much on the social conventions or expectations women are faced with at the appropria"

Every murmur struck her with new terror ...] (Walpole 61). This passage of Walpole's The Castle of Otranto is only one example that shows how the construction of the setting in this novel strongly contributes to the atmosphere of the tale. Also in other passages it becomes obvious that the description of space and landscape conveys a specific meaning within the story, and even prefigures the development throughout the plot. Nunning and Nunning mention: Raume fungieren] nicht nur als Schauplatze ...], sondern erfullen] eine Erzahlfunktion' ...], raumliche Oppositionen werden] zum Modell fur semantische Oppositionen'" (cf. 132). Thus, several places and the landscape depicted in the setting may function as semantic carriers (cf. ibid. 133). In this essay it will be examined in how far space is semantically charged in Walpole's work, and how this influences the plot, the atmosphere within the story, and the reader's perception of it. In addition, it will be shown that the semantic charging of the settings in The Castle of Otranto is also influenced by its being a Gothic novel. Therefore, a definition of the latter term will be given as well..."
