CMPL 280 - World Gothic

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
The 18th-century Gothic genre which embraced the uncanny, the fantastic, and the supernatural, has had a prolific afterlife. This course traces the genre from its 18th-century beginnings in England to its prodigious dissemination across literary traditions and artistic mediums. We will consider the world of the Gothic by reading some of its prominent manifestations in non-Anglophone literatures. We will also consider how the world is represented in Gothic novels through their foreign, exotic, or international settings. Critical and theoretical texts, as well as artworks and film will accompany our exploration of the genre. Readings in English translation.
