Burying the Literary Corpus in the Modern City
Richard Walker

This essay explores the way in which Gothic tropes and metaphors manifest themselves in writing that is not recognisably classed as Gothic in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It argues that recent Gothic writing has exhausted the potency of such motifs and that criticism needs to re-examine the literature of modernity, in particular that of ‘High’ culture, and assess the way in which Gothic metaphor manifests itself therein. Ultimately the paper explores literature which troubles the traditional boundaries constructed between aesthetics and ethics found in nineteenth-century cultural discourse.

has analysed the influence of individual notaries’ linguistic habits on the records ( Inquisitors and Heretics , pp. 83–106). Arnold has analysed the different voices of the records, the balance between inquisitorial categorisation and the excess of detail generated within each deposition (Arnold, Inquisition and Power , chs 3, 4 and 5). In a parallel vein, Bruschi’s study, suggesting how to read depositions, restored some agency to the person under interrogation and emphasised what she called the ‘surplus’ of evidence provided

colony continues in Andrew Ballantyne’s chapter. Here again aesthetic theory, in the form of picturesque systems of viewing and the Burkean sublime, is used to examine literary and architectural constructions of national identity and the role of women as embodiments of national virtue. Continuing the debates of Dana Arnold’s chapter, Ballantyne examines the politics of land-ownership as played out within
