Reading 'gothic' novels was the pop culture of that time, affecting the impressionable mind.
200 years ago JA (unknowingly) sensed this phenomena which is so widespread today.
It seems we can't get away from reading.
If one is not sensible about all this reading one can get misled by a raised imagination, and all the trivial appearances of alarm regarding - oh so many things.
Catherine was lucky as she had only 'gothic' novels to deal with and a Henry to show her the right way to deal with them.
And it would seem not all are 17 year old Catherines who get affected these days.
