This study explores the relations between reader and text across the span of Sheridan Le Fanu's career, placing his early work of the 1830s in context. Victor Sage concentrates on the development in Le Fanu of hybrid forms, which mingle satire and comedy with Gothic horror, and also discusses the early work of "Uncle Silas" and "Carmilla", giving space to the often neglected unpublished romances.
