Abstract

This article discusses some principles of Gothic bluebooks and chapbooks. It emphasizes the idea that because of its derivative nature and lack of artistic sophistication, chapbooks were ignored by urban readers. It outlines the views of several scholars, which include Montague Summers, William St. Clair and Gary Kelly, regarding the significance of gothic bluebooks and chapbooks. It also features the works of Sarah Scudgell who is one of the most prolific author writers of gothic chapbooks.
