Abstract:
This thesis offers a theoretically-aware discussion of the stage appropriations of Gothic novels and dramas in the 1790. Works discussed in detail include: *The Monk*, *The Romance of the Forest*, *The Castle Spectre* and their adaptations, re-writings and afterlives. The author examines many intersemiotic practices in the above works as well as in several others, drawing her examples from the whole Georgian period; she also explains the signifying function of costuming, lighting, music and special effects in Gothic. The concepts of intertheatricality and infratheatricality, and their relavance to Gothic are addressed in order to attempt a new definition of the genre.
