Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4HU, WR
Much as we associate the reign of Queen Victoria with prudishness and moral restraint, literature from this period frequently exposes the dark underside of the Victorians’ social psyche. What are some of the social, political, and psychological concerns and anxieties behind Victorian authors’ fascination with the sinister, the criminal, the vampiric? Authors include Dickens, Wilkie Collins, Sheridan Le Fanu, Bram Stoker, R. L. Stevenson, and others. British, 1700-1900.
