Origin

Gothic Fiction began in the second half of the 18th century when socialite and novelist, Horace Walpole, published Castle of Otranto. Gothicism came as an offshoot of Romanticism, both of which rejected Neoclassicism. Gothic Literature was also inspired by Gothic architecture(SmartHistory) which at the time was majorly popular. The reason this style was favored so was because it appealed it people by weaving a beauty of the unpleasant, the horrifying and even the grotesque.
