Welcome to Professor Marshall's Course, Gothic Tradition in Literature
This course will consider works that fall under the very broad genre known as “The Gothic.” As this genre is one of highly contested boundaries, we will consider how to define the Gothic, and what exactly constitutes this form. Our five major novels are from both England and America, and span the late 18th through the 19th century.
