I will be discussing Pugin’s abstractions, beliefs and ideologies and how they diverged from the Classical-Protestant views of the day, also, illustrating the features that could be interpreted as traditional or dissenting. An unfortunate fire at the Palace of Westminster in 1834, obliterated most of the Old Palace. This event brought about the catalyst for the social acceptance of the Gothic Revival; however this was initially seen as dissenting. Following the fire a committee met and decided that the new palace would be Gothic or Elizabethan in style and accepted designs from prolific architects and designers. Neo-classicism was the architecture of the time and had been for two hundred years.
‘Some Houses are born Bad’ (Shirley Jackson, The Haunting). Discuss the Representation of the House or ‘Home’ in a Range of Writers Studied on the Course Throughout the history of both European and American gothic fiction, the setting has played an important role in ensuring the correct atmosphere is achieved; ‘that atmosphere of gloom and decay which adheres to the crumbling abbey and ruined castle in the gothic novel. In few other genres does the setting play such a significant role’ During the ascendancy of European Gothic, novels were typically set in remote structures such as Manfred’s castle in The Castle of Otranto, and, in The Monk the Castle Lindenberg and the Abbey. These settings were inspired by a fear of what lies beyond the borders of civilisation , remote catholic countries generally provided the location for these settings. By the gothic revival of 1850-1880, with the exception of Castle Dracula, the setting had moved from grand, mysterious structures of foreign lands to the urban dwellings and labyrinthine streets of Victorian cities such as Edinburgh and London, the setting for Hogg’s The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner and Stevenson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde respectively.
The settings presented are also dark and eeire, and Dracula himself lives in solitude with no other companion. The film adaptation of Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ is just as reliant on the conventions of Gothic fiction (a genre that was extremely popular in the early nineteenth century when the book was written) as the novel, making it not only follow nicely in the novel’s footsteps but also proving to be a chilling delight for the viewing audience. Gothic fiction traditionally includes elements such as wild landscapes, eerie castles, darkness, and decay, isolation, security, the supernatural and innocent maidens threatened by unspeakable evil. Stoker has utilized all of the above and consequently, as does this film adaptation. An example of this would be in the theme of isolation as Dracula’s castle is hidden in the recesses of Transylvania, kept away from civilization of any description.

Stoker’s Warning: Be Wary of Modernity Throughout its entirety, the novel Dracula, by Bram Stoker, attempts to warn its readers of the dangers of advance. Bram Stoker wrote his famous novel during a time of extraordinary change in England. The Victorian way of life, a way of life that had ruled England for generations upon generations, was finally giving way to the industrial age. With the industrial age came the rise of new ways of thought and life, including a bigger focus on scientific breakthroughs, a revolution in female expression, and a massive influx of foreigners into Britain, bringing along with them unheard of customs and ideas. For Stoker, this new way of life seemed dangerous and scarily new, threatening to usurp everything
Washington Irving is identified with the gothic with his “Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, however the gothic mode can also be identified in his story, “Rip Van Winkle”. To begin, both will be compared with their use of the Gothic Mode. Edgar Allan Poe’s writing set the mold for most gothic literature to follow. From “The Raven” to “The Tell-Tale Heart” his writing sets the reader on edge and fills them with unease. “Its style tends to be ornate, unnatural” (Carter 134).
