ENGL 155 PZ -Victorian Monsters

Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course investigates representations of monsters and the monstrous in 19th-C British literature. Monstrous beings such as Frankenstein’s Creature, Carmilla, Dr. Jekyll, Jack the Ripper, Dracula, and the Beetle, among many others, stalk the worlds and pages of Victorian literary imagination, often passing as human until their fundamental difference is exposed. What cultural fears, anxieties, and desires do these beings embody? What aesthetic and moral values do these literary monsters express? What distinguishes the monster from the human, and is the difference readily apparent? What can the monsters teach us about ourselves?

Prerequisite(s): A prior literature class or permission of instructor. Please also check the current course schedule for requirements.
