ETS 410-5: Ghosts, Money, and Monsters in the Victorian Short Story
MAYmester | MTWTF 8 a.m.-noon
Dr. Claudia Klaver
When it comes to weird, we have nothing on the Victorians.
More adventurous and experimental than the Victorian novel, Victorian short fiction ranged from realism, social problem fictions, and New Women fiction, to ghost and vampire stories, science fiction, and utopian stories. We’ll explore all of these in the works of Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Elizabeth Gaskell, Sheridan La Fanu, Thomas Hardy, and many less canonical writers. Pre-1900 course.
