This paper examines Gothic-Postmodernism in Dora Pavel’s fiction. In the first theoretical part, it will be presented the symbiotic convergence and the genetical affinity between Gothic and Post-modernism. In the second part, it will be shown that the works of the Romanian writer, through hybridizations and grafts, incorporates Gothic features sometimes explicitly, sometimes unconsciously and in a more encrypted way. A summary analysis of the first two novels – Dying Agata (Agata murind, 2003) and The Captive (Captivul, 2006) – will be proposed, through which some Gothic traces will be reviewed. A more extended case study will be dedicated to the novel Powder (Pudră, 2010).

Abstract

This paper examines Gothic-Postmodernism in Dora Pavel’s fiction. In the first theoretical part, it will be presented the symbiotic convergence and the genetical affinity between Gothic and Post-modernism. In the second part, it will be shown that the works of the Romanian writer, through hybridizations and grafts, incorporates Gothic features sometimes explicitly, sometimes unconsciously and in a more encrypted way. A summary analysis of the first two novels – Dying Agata (Agata murind, 2003) and The Captive (Captivul, 2006) – will be proposed, through which some Gothic traces will be reviewed. A more extended case study will be dedicated to the novel Powder (Pudră, 2010).
