Title: Blood,Wine&Women-Glbl Gothic
Course Section Number: ENG-270-01
Department: English
Description: Blood! Wine! Women! Everything one needs for a pleasurable Gothic story, no? The Gothic literary genre debuted in the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries as a form of literature obsessed with dark villains, flawed heroes, forbidden sexual romances, and supernatural entities. Not for the faint of heart, Gothic literature took taboo to a new level with complicated characters that reflected humanity's desire to understand the mysterious. This course will chronicle the Gothic literary tradition from its inception to the contemporary moment. We will embark on a globetrotting adventure to grapple with the Gothic in America, Britain, Mexico, Japan, Germany, Russia, and other locations. Poems, novels, short stories, movies, anime, music. No genre will be off-limits. Assignments will range from short papers to quizzes and exams with a special opportunity to write your own Gothic story! If you really fancy yourself brave enough, then sign up and see just what happens when humans are forced to face their darkest impulses.
