Le roman gothique britannique et la muse parodique de Paul Féval : Ann Radcliffe dans "La Ville-Vampire"

Abstract : Though Ann Radcliffe was undoubtedly one of the most famous British gothic novelists, her life has always been a mystery both for her contemporaries and posterity. Paradoxically her outstanding literary success came along with a complete lack of a public face. Thus, her readers often tried to imagine her through the lens of her gothic novels and many disturbing rumours spread about her. In his Vampire City published in 1874, Paul Féval, one of the most prolific popular novelists of nineteenth-century France, carries on with this kind of fictionalizing practice by making Ann Radcliffe the protagonist of his novel. This article would like to address in which ways and to what extent the presence of a real writer influences a work of fiction.
