Frances, left penniless after the death of her gambler-spendthrift husband (who in an attempt to escape debtor's prison tries to sell her to his friend) opens a school for girls, and eventually takes up residence with another tragic widow, Isabella di Soranzo, whom she rescues from a mental breakdown. Frances, Rachel, and Isabella not only survive their trials, but eventually become productive and beneficial members of society, thus serving as positive examples of the potential opportunity for widows in eighteenth-century England."--Jacket+-+895386923520512ocn642324215file17990.82Reeve, ClaraThe old English baron a gothic story.

Comic characters in the Gothic texts of Horace Walpole, Ann Radcliffe, and Clara Reeve establish the comic as a serious and legitimate part of the Gothic aesthetic. Comic characters continue to appear in all forms of the Gothic, including its parodies, well into the nineteenth-century, suggesting that these characters endure as necessary and vital elements within the evolving Gothic genre. As the genre evolves, the characters evolve as well, progressing from fool to humorist and then wit. This evolution reflects a shift in comic agency and the changing theories of humor between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The comic character's creation of humor, in a literary genre whose sole claim to fame often seems to be the development of terror, creates an axis which reveals much about the Gothic author's aesthetic concerns. In the context of insightful cultural readings delineated by recent Gothic scholars, I demonstrate how a formal reading of Gothic convention can establish not just cultural legitimacy for the genre, but also aesthetic legitimacy by reassessing the ways in which comic characters' humorous wordplay deliberately disrupts readers' expectations about the emotionally charged tenor of the conventional Gothic narrative11ocn041069792visu1.00Marshall, Alice KahlerWoman authors graphics collectionPortraitsThis portion of the collection contains engraved and printed images of, and some with articles about, women authors: Louisa May Alcott, Joanna Baillie, Mrs. C.P.
