Hey guys,
So I recently had a lesson on gothic parodies, but i'm a bit confused what makes something a gothic parody specifically, becuase when I read through northanger abbey (for example) it appears to be a gothic novel that adopts all the usual tropes.
Thanks to anyone who could clear this up for me

A Gothic parody is when the writer uses the tropes to mock the genre

You sure you read it? Her imagination goes wild thinking up all these gothic ideas when there is a rational explanation for everything. In real gothic literature there really is something ominous, satanic or ghostly going on.
