Description: Ruined monasteries, echoing manor houses, strange relics, mysterious deaths, ghosts. These are elements of the literary form known as the Gothic novel. From multiple-volume serialized tales of the 18th century to Young Adult literature today, the Gothic has remained popular, and Ireland has contributed significant writers and tales to the tradition. In this short course, we will look at some of the major historical works of Irish Gothic literature including The Children of The Abbey (1796), Melmoth the Wanderer (1820), Carmilla (1872), and, of course, Dracula (1897). We will also peek at some of the newest Irish Gothic writers to be found on bookshelves. Excerpts will be provided in class; no book purchases necessary.
