What are the characteristics of the Gothic Romance?
#10
Heathcliffe's girl. Wrote:Something gothic romances tend to have in common is a danger within the domestic setting. Classics such as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Rebecca all have something for the woman to fear inside her own home or domestic environment.

Gothic romances demonstrate to the reader that it's not what's outside that we need to fear.

Interesting. You could say that some of the turmoil can be inside the heroine as well. Fears of the past, etc.
