At the end of the nineteenth century in Britain, the gothic novel developed in a way that reflected Victorian anxieties concerning human sexuality. Commonly referred to as the fin de siècle, this period was a time when England was rapidly progressing technologically, scientifically, and socially. Authors of gothic fiction began to express societal and cultural anxieties concerning these developments—as well as the very future of England—by using tropes such as supernatural subjects, monstrous characters, and frightening plots. For example, the controversial role of homosexuality in British society at the time began to make its way into gothic novels. Authors including Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, and Robert Louis Stevenson—some of whom struggled with their own sexual identities—endeavored to create a voice for the ostracized homosexual in fiction. Through close readings of both imaginative Victorian novels, including Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890), Stoker’s Dracula (1897), and Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), as well as key texts concerning the history and theory of gender and sexuality studies, this thesis reveals that the modern stereotype of the “homosexual” gained notoriety during the fin de siècle, as representations of same-sex relationships emerged and as psychological discussions attempted to explain the "causes" and "treatments" for such ostensible “abnormalities” during this period.
