  • Aesthetic Appreciation

Spooky crumbling castles and things that go bump in the night are not all there is to gothic literature. This course examines the ways in which this literary genre delves into the human psyche to explore all the dark impulses that arise from the human soul. The course also looks at ways in which gender and sexuality figure into both the writing of this literature and the attitudes that it expresses. Students learn to examine fiction through a literary critical lens.

Prerequisite Details: 

WRT 107 with a final grade of C- or better.
