Shelley, M.: Frankenstein; Stoker, B.: Dracula


We will read B. Stoker’s Dracula and M. Shelley’s Frankenstein, together with some film versions of these two archetypal horror tales, appreciating them as mirror opposites of each other, and investigating what they have to tell us about human agency, responsibility and denial.

This 1-unit course may not be counted as one of the twelve courses required to complete the English major.
