Drawing from and reworking Gothic conventions, the New Woman version is marshaled during a tumultuous cultural moment of gender anxiety either to defend or revile thecomplex character. The controversial and compelling figure of the New Woman in fin de siecle British fiction has garnered extensive scholarly attention, but rarely has she been investigated through the lens of the Gothic. Part I, "The Blurred Boundary," examines an obfuscated distinction between the New Woman and the prostitute, presented in a stunning breadth and array of writings. Part II, "Reconfigured Conventions," probes four key aspects of the Gothic, each of which is reshaped to reflect the exigencies of the fin de siecle. In Part III, "Villainous Characters," the bad father of Romantic fiction is bifurcated into the husband and the mother, both of whom cause greatsuffering to the protagonist.
