Think you know all there is to know about Frankenstein? Monsters? Insane scientists? Animal testing? Think again! You may be very surprised in this course which tackles the foundational works that have remained part of our cultural subconscious. This class is a brief survey of the origins of British Gothic literature. Students begin their study of this subgenre with Mary Shelley’s landmark story of a mad doctor and his creation. This seminal work stands alone. Students will be fascinated and challenged by Frankenstein and will wrestle with a number of difficult questions including the role of science, the ethics of scientific work, and the love (or lack thereof) of a creator for his creation. Robert Louis Stevenson’s short stories and cultural mainstay The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde poses further thought-provoking questions regarding friendship, worldview, and responsibility. The students’ journey continues with . Wells’ surreal and compelling The Island of Doctor Moreau , another tale that forces students to think about ethical choices. Daphne DuMaurier’s Rebecca and Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black are gripping tales. The semester ends with the enormously popular classic A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. This is a highly interactive class with lots of discussion. The course includes discussion questions, vocabulary quizzes, projects, and two papers. Because of the dialogue nature of this class, a functioning microphone will be needed. Special Note: Students can combine this class with the spring semester course entitled American Gothics to create a full year course experience which could be coined as “Survey of Gothic Literature.”
