Content

This unit examines the literature of the supernatural through a study of texts across a broad historical period. It includes gothic novels (such as Frankenstein) as well as recent popular cultural texts in genres such as fantasy novels (such as Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings or A Game of Thrones), revisionist fairytales (such as Angela Carter or Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde) and the literary fantastic (such as The Master and Margarita or Jeanette Winterson). Comparative in nature, the unit examines the representation of supernatural and fantastic elements through an investigation of myth, legend, fairytale and modern supernatural fiction. The aim is to encourage students to think critically and comparatively about the importance of the supernatural and fantastic in literature as represented at different times and in different genres.
