Novels of the 1890s are different in so many ways from the novels of the rest of the Nineteenth-Century that they seem almost to belong to a different genre. To what extent would you agree with this claim?
in genre style, and can be seen as a progression and extension of the realist novel rather than a completely different genre. The fin de si�cle novel of the 1890's represented the transgression of the conventional genre boundaries, as they reflected the uncertainty, questioning and challenging of identity that dominated the end of one century and the beginning of another. Dracula, as part of this movement, uses its themes, style, and structure as 'a reaction against realism', using the gothic as a map to explore what 'in realism, is not only unsaid, but probably unsayable' (Walder, p.197).
