This type of story fell flat on its face with the rise of women’s liberation.

In the prologue to The Castle Spectre Lewis suggested a starting point for this exploration. He used the figure of Romance to introduce his listeners to a number of specific locations which he would deem to be gothic: She loathes the sun, or blazing taper's light; The moon-beam'd landscape and tempestuous night Alone she loves; and oft, with glimmering lamp, Near graves new-open'd, or midst dungeons damp, Drear forests, ruin'd aisles, and haunted towers, Forlorn she roves, and raves away the hours!(2) In his list of church-yards, dungeons, forests, ruined churches, castles—all locations frequently used by the gothic playwright—Lewis was harking back to Samuel Johnson's dictionary definition of the word ‘Romantick’: ‘wild … improbable; false …; fanciful; full of wild scenery’.3 Lewis wrote an epilogue to Thomas Holcroft's play, Knave or Not (1798) in which he added to the list of locations some of the other appurtenances of the gothic: Give us Lightning and Thunder, Flames, Daggers and Rage; With events that ne'er happened, except on the Stage; When your Spectre departs, through a trapdoor ingulph her, Burn under her nose, too, some brimstone and sulpher Lady X. Harlequin, of Canada, dropped all other literary types and began printing only romances beginning in 1960.

Le Fanu's short story collection In a Glass Darkly (1872) includes the superlative vampire tale Carmilla, which provided fresh blood for that particular strand of the Gothic and influenced Bram Stoker 's vampire novel Dracula (1897) The Lawman's Surrender.
