This course studies a range of British literature in the Gothic mode and considers the ways in which this literature of terror gives us insights into nineteenth-century England that aren’t as readily accessible through literary realism. Beginning with some Romantic works by Coleridge, Byron, and Mary Shelley, we then look at mid-century works by less well known writers, finishing with Bram Stoker’s Dracula. As we consider literary Gothicism within this British landscape, we will also consider the various narrative strategies of those texts.
