Shiel, Stenbock, Gilchrist, and Machen

  • James Machin
Chapter
Part of the Palgrave Gothic book series (PAGO)

Abstract

Machin demonstrates that minority or obscurity, and the concomitant amenity to the mythologization of minor or obscure writers and their lives, is central to contemporary understanding and valorization of the haute Weird. To do this he examines the life and work of M. P. Shiel, R. Murray Gilchrist, Count Stenbock, and Arthur Machen. Machin positions ‘connoisseur culture’ as an important and ongoing aspect of weird fiction. He argues that related aesthetic distinctions can lead to weird fiction being a conscious attempt at achieving literary respectability, free of the (to some) problematically déclassé implications of popular genres such as horror. He also looks at some other key contexts to the weird fiction of this period, including orientalism and the arabesque.
