Course Description: This course offers an introduction to the contexts, nature, form, and enduring cultural power of Gothic fiction in modernity. It examines the formal conventions of Gothic fiction as they related to the social, cultural, economic, and political contexts in which it first appeared in the late 18 th century. It also tracks ways in which the genre was reworded through the 19 th and 20 th century. The course connects changing historical structures of patriarchal and paternal authority to the aesthetics of horror and terror, and links modern notions of individuality to conceptions of monstrosity.
