This is the preliminary syllabus for next semester's MA-level Gothic course, which covers the entire nineteenth century. I've taught both early and Victorian Gothic at the undergraduate level, but this is my first go with graduate students. Still working on what to assign from the scholarship in the field. Also, Mrs. Oliphant should get a look-in somewhere (probably with Braddon, Broughton, and Riddell). Hound appears at the end as a nice late-Victorian wink at the whole genre (along with "The Canterville Ghost," a story that allows you to play "pin the tail on the trope"). I confess that I teach Le Fanu's "An Account..." whenever possible.
Incidentally, I do hope that these e-texts refrain from vanishing, as e-texts so aggravatingly have a habit of doing.
