A beautiful and dangerous book by Wendy Walker, with a preface by Daniel Levin Becker.
SEXUAL STEALING is an interrogation of the Gothic, slavery, and sexual exploitation. Where the authors of the first Gothic novels set their tales in worlds safely distant in time and space from the conventions of late eighteenth-century England, Wendy Walker probes the obsessions and anxieties underlying these works, and dramatizes a tale of forcible taking, the brutal exercise of wealth and power, and the revolution that follows.
SEXUAL STEALING is formally innovative, written using a simple constraint to extract clues from Anne Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho. Walker has also selected quotations and images, chiefly from late eighteenth and early nineteenth century sources, to illuminate and comment upon the newly excavated text.
