Mad or Misunderstood – Representations of Madness in British Drama
Irena Slapar, 2016, magistrsko delo

Opis: Madness has always fascinated as well as frightened people, which is why its mysterious and indefinite essence has served as an inexhaustible source of inspiration to authors in novels, poetry and plays, and has personified itself in the works of artists. Madness has been an important theme in drama, since it mystified and excited the writers of tragedies as long ago as in Ancient Greece, whereas it entered the British world of drama with the same intensity at the time of its greatest creativity and has remained there ever since. Although it has subsided for a while in certain periods of time, it has never completely diminished into oblivion. Towards the end of the 20th century it resurfaced and regained its importance as an indispensable way of expression of the younger generation of playwrights, which shocked audience and critics alike. The thesis analyses different manifestations of alleged madness and examines how the understanding of irrational behaviour changed through centuries. It questions if diagnosis of the same mental disturbance differed whether the patient was a woman or a man. It further on analyses what kind of treatment was considered to be the most appropriate in a certain time and age. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the representations of (alleged) female madness in the plays of Sarah Daniels.

Emigration gothic
Michelle Gadpaille, 2006, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Ellen Ross (l816?-1892) emigrated from Scotland to Montreal at mid-century and wrote two Gothic novels, in one of which - Violet Keith, An Autobiography (1868) - she used the Canadian setting as a fantastic Gothic locale in which to explore areas of social and sexual transgression. Drawing on earlier traditions of European Gothic, including Sir Walter Scott's mythologized Scottish landscape, and on an emerging North American genre of convent exposes, Ross's writing accommodates female protest, distances it from reality and allows its dissipation in conventional denouements. If female Gothic can be read as an analogue of realistic women's problems, then perhaps this analogy can be extended to encompass emigration and immigrant life. The paper analyzes Ross's motifs of loss, imprisonment, solitude, surveillance and deliverance and considers the possibility that Gothic motifs in her work both conceal and express features of the immigrant's psychic battle with the transition to the New World.
