Based on the theoretical features of the two genres and the analysis of the book, the conclusion... (More)

Based on the theoretical features of the two genres and the analysis of the book, the conclusion is made that a novel’s genre does influence the interpretation of the text. Especially, the interpretation of the story would change if the novel would be considered only gothic or only fantastic, so the most accurate interpretation of the story would be attained by regarding the book as a hybrid novel, with features of both genres taken into consideration.

Partiendo de teorías sobre los géneros y el análisis de la obra, también se concluye que la determinación de género de la novela sí influye en la lectura. Sobre todo cambiaría la interpretación de la historia si se viera la novela sólo como gótica o fantástica, así que la mayor impresión de la novela se obtendrá si se ve la novela como una novela híbrida, tomando los dos géneros en consideración.
