Richard Marsh: Re-reading the Fin de Siècle

A one-day symposium organised by Victoria Margree seeks to re-evaluate the work of Victorian author Richard Marsh.

Women Writers of Late-Victorian Gothic

Victoria Margree's research continues from an original co-authored chapter for the Edinburgh Companion to the Victorian Gothic (April 2012).

'The Beetle'

Contends that Richard Marsh’s gothic novel, The Beetle, is ridden with ambivalence about the ‘modernity’ facing society at the end of the 19th century
