Sample text

As Egenolf suggests, particularly important in Morgan’s corpus is the blending of genres and the recurring figure of the active, political, and remarkably effective heroine who is often institutionally connected to the church as a nun or novice. In Part Five, on canonical Irish gothic fiction, these tendencies to mix genres and play with the inauthenticity of the text and of identities find a home in the gothic mode. Maturin, Le Fanu, and Stoker, long central in British gothic studies and always in print, are arguably Ireland’s biggest ongoing literary export from the pre-1900 era.
