Sage concentrates on the development in Le Fanu of hybrid forms, examining closely the corpus of this author's work from the point of view of narrative methods and implied reader positions, and relating these throughout to contemporary, cultural politics from the 1830s to the 1870s. The book contains separate discussions of the early work of Uncle Silas, and "Carmilla"
and gives space to the unpublished romances, which are often neglected.
