Inhalt
For more than two centuries, literary Gothic has been a main staple of English literature and it has entertained readers ever since. After the genre’s inception with Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto (1764), the Gothic quickly captured not only the readers’ interest but also their favour and it became the best-selling genre in the 1790s. Despite the genre’s decline in the early 1820s, it resurfaced in the late 19th century and has since been an important part of British literary history. Now, in 2019, we can look back at more than a full century of increased interest in a genre that is still going strong and has conquered not only literature, but all media.

In this class, we will specifically study the Gothic of the last roughly 100 years, starting in the early 20th century and finishing with today’s literary (and some filmic) Gothic. To do so, we will mainly cover narrative texts (novels and short stories) tracing the development of generic markers and socio-political relevance of the Gothic from 1900 to today. The reading list below is by no means exhaustive and more literature will be announced here and in the first session of class. Moreover, we will focus on literary scholarship in the areas of Gothic literature, (literary) subcultures, and audience reception. Short excerpts from primary and secondary material will be available on the VC – please contact lecturer upon enrolment in the class to receive the password for the VC course.
