Genre, perhaps? Romantic gothic versus fin de siecle gothic?

Or... maybe 'the Other' in Gothic fiction? Representations of the racial otherness of Heathcliff and Dracula?

Gender, perhaps? I didn't study Wuthering Heights, but I'm sure that female sexuality is a theme: she refuses to fulfill her wifely role, and in doing so becomes a sort of Lillith character (preceded Eve in Eden, but was expelled due refusing to lie under Adam). Does Brontë approve or disapprove of Cathy? In Dracula, there's the idea that what the men are really afraid of is female sexuality: the 'new woman' of the nineteenth century, sexually liberated and needing to be destroyed!! Just a random idea; sorry I can't be more help. good luck!
