In this ground-breaking study Saggini explores the relationship between the late eighteenth-century novel and the theatre, arguing that the implicit theatricality of the Gothic novel made it an obvious source from which dramatists could take ideas. Similarly, she suggests that elements of the theatre - costume, lighting, music and special effects - provided inspiration to novelists.
