It describes how a number of works enabled the Gothic legacy to be brought up to date and explains how the so-called Sensation vogue provided principal repository for Gothic themes in the middle decades of the 19th century. Some of the most notable works during this period include Nathaniel Hawthorne's The House of the Seven Gables, Margaret Jane Hooper's The House of Raby, and Charles Dickens's Little Dorrit.
