Description

(Also WMS 258) There is more to Gothic literature than ghosts and spooky houses. This course examines how the genre dramatizes and explores the dark impulses that arise in the human psyche; it also studies how gender and sexuality shape the writing of this literature and the attitudes that it expresses. The course may focus on American Gothic literature or British Gothic literature, and may be repeated for credit when that focus changes.
