Paranormal and fantasy genres also build on the Gothic background. Professor John Mullan examines the origins of the Gothic, explaining how the genre became one of the most popular of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and the subsequent integration of Gothic elements into mainstream Victorian fiction. Gothic fiction began as a sophisticated joke. Horace Walpole first applied the word ‘Gothic’ to a novel in the subtitle – ‘A Gothic Story’ – of The Castle of Otranto, published in 1764 The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider's Guide. The identification as St George proceeds on several fronts: following the death of his wife in the early 1790s, St George wrote a letter to an artist, assumed to be Henry Fuseli, proposing that he create an emblematic portrait of him. This was to be based in part on extant likenesses, which includes a painting of him done by Gainsborough ‘in my youth’ (Weinglass ed., Collected English Letters of Henry Fuseli, pp.66-71) The sitter in the Melbourne picture bears a strong likeness with the known portraits of St George by Hugh Douglas Hamilton, both the full-length now in the National Gallery of Ireland, and more especially the small portrait showing the sitter wearing a black silk cap (misidentified as from the ‘Circle of Francois Xavier Fabré’, Sotheby’s, London, 28 November 2001) Everlasting Enchantment (The Relics of Merlin). Hugh Holman, A Handbook to Literature, 3d. ed. Indianapolis: Odyssey, 1972. �Gothic Fantasy": The starting point of Gothic literature is usually given as The Castle of Otranto (1765) by Horace Walpole. .. . Although all Gothic fiction is tragedy, its key component is the edifice [or building]. .. . Gothic fiction usually takes place in an ancient castle or abbey whose owner discovers his noble line is doomed, usually because some past misdemeanor has caused the family to be cursed.. .. [The genre] was desensationalized and adopted into the mainstream by Charlotte Bronte in Jane Eyre (1847) and Emily Bronte in Wuthering Heights (1847).. .. [In the late 19th and early 20th centuries] the Gothic mode shifted toward romantic fiction, and was revived strongly in the work of Daphne du Maurier, who built on the work of the Brontes to lay the foundation for the modern Gothic romance.. . .--Mike Ashley, �Gothic Fantasy,� The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, eds The Untamed One (Wild Wulfs of London).
