ENGL 309 - The Fantastic And The Uncanny In Literature


Credit(s): 3
This course focuses on representations of the fantastic and uncanny in the literary tradition, from ghosts prowling Gothic castles to psychological preoccupations. Students will delve into literature that presents the fantastic and/or uncanny, and work to unpack how those fantastical elements function in a text (psychologically, historically, structurally and culturally). By analyzing the uncanny in it all its complexity – as both a spiritual and psychological phenomenon – students will grapple with the fantastic, bizarre and strange in literature.

Prerequisites: one 200-level literature course.
Course Level: Undergraduate
