Titel 1 01, Gothic Literature - EXAM

The purpose of this course is to provide the students with an in-depth understanding of the gothic genre. Through the analysis of older and contemporary texts, we study the motifs, the conventions, and the typical themes in gothic literature. What was the typical hero and heroine like? How can we identify the gothic elements in a text? We have also briefly discussed the emergence of gothic fiction in the wider sociopolitical context: first, at the end of the 18thC, then at the end of the 19thC, and in our time. We have focused on the setting; characterisation; themes; the Gothic hero and heroine; Gothic sexuality; and used the terms: the uncanny, the sublime, the supernatural, metonymy.
The students also worked in groups and prepared individual oral presentations on Stevenson's novella with the additional aim of practising the oral exam.
