ENGL 128 - (LT) British Gothic Fiction and Modern Horror

Semester Hours: 3 s.h.


Periodically

This course examines how British Gothic fiction, often set in the hidden chambers and subterranean passages of foreboding castles, brings repressed tales of subjugation to light and thus critiques oppressive political regimes, systematic injustices, and tyrannical parental figures.  Course texts may include:  Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto; Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey; Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; Ann Radcliffe’s The Italian, or the Confessional of the Black Penitents; Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights; Rebecca du Maurier’s Rebecca; and Neil Gaiman’s Coraline.  This course will also explore how the gothic genre has been adapted into films such as Black Swan and Ex Machina. 

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
