    Abstract:
    This chapter presents a case study of the gothic novel reader and the way notions about gothic novels and their readers developed in Russia. The chapter takes a comparative approach, drawing on reviews and reader accounts from both England and Russia, to demonstrate how similar attitudes in both countries were despite Russia's later gothic wave. Finally, the chapter considers readers' memories of gothic novels and their legacy in Russian culture.
