    One thought on “The Castle of Otranto and the Man of Feeling, A Longman Cultural Edition (Longman Cultural Editions)”

    1. This edition consists of two short 18th century novels along with a bit of criticism and cultural context. I checked it out because I wanted to read the Castle of Otranto, the first ever "gothic novel." I liked that one much better than The man of Feeling because of the gothic and supernatural aspects. The language wasn't too hard to read, and someone had annotated in the margins, although most of her annotations were simply exclamatory reactions to her distaste for the personalities of the char [...]

    2. These texts are important as they are the beginnings of their genres, especially Otranto as the founder of Gothic Romance. The Man of Feeling belongs to the sentimental genre, which not necessarily a founder of the sentimental, but you can see how he influenced later writers like Scott and Shelley. Otranto plot pulls you right through, Man of Feeling, really lots of bits to mull over. It's difficult to discern where Mackenzie stands in all the commentary and what he critiques in this novel.

    3. An interesting introduction to gothic literature, but I'm not a fan of the way it is written* (both the writing style and the overly dramatic story). This should make for an good text to analyze though, especially in regard to gender, the supernatural, etc. * I only read THE CASTLE OF OTRANTO.
