This three-volume set spans all facets of the gothic, including visual and performing arts, society and culture, and themes and settings. Complete with primary source documents and critical material to provide contextual perspective, a related chronology of key events, full-text commentaries, lists of further readings and many other extras.
Covers world authors from many periods and genres, building a broad understanding of the various contexts--from the biographical to the literary to the historical--in which literature can be viewed. Allows a reader to analyze an author's work as a reflection of the heritage, traditions and experiences of the author's personal life and the beliefs, events, and lifestyles of the world at the time.
Tales of terror are as old as literature itself. The penchant for tales of the macabre reached its height in the eighteenth century and remains popular to the present with the works of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Anne Rice, and Poppy Z. Brite, among others. This course will examine the works of four novels emblematic of the height of the gothic novel and one contemporary novel that borrows from the gothic while examining its subject in a unique manner. We will discuss them thematically, exploring what the author was saying symbolically.
