Contesting the Gothic : fiction, genre, and cultural conflict, 1764-1832 by James Watt( Book )

24 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Watt's historically grounded account of Gothic fiction takes issue with received accounts of the genre as a stable and continuous tradition. Charting its vicissitudes from Walpole's The Castle of Otranto to Scott's Waverley novels, Watt shows the Gothic to have been a heterogeneous body of fiction, characterised at times by antagonistic relations between various writers or works. Central to Watt's argument about the writing and reception of these works is a nuanced understanding of their political import: he discusses Walpole's attempt to forge an aristocratic identity, the loyalist affiliations of many neglected works of the 1790s, the subversive reputation of The Monk, and the ways in which Radcliffean romance proved congenial to conservative critics."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it appeared in 1923, John Lord's Capital and Steam Power 1750-1800 was the first book to be based on the voluminous Boultori and Watt papers in Birmingham since the hey-day of Samuel Smiles.
