Lévy wrote his dissertation on English gothic literature, making extensive use of the University of Virginia's Sadleir-Black Collection of Gothic Literature and quickly became known as a pre-eminent scholar on the subject. In 2009, Lévy contacted UVa to donate his personal collection of French Gothic translations. Lévy died in 2012.
