Your feedback is important! Tell us how we did this year!

This month we are featuring a

GOTHIC READS display!

Gothic literature, a movement that focused on ruin, decay, death, terror, chaos, and privileged irrationality and passion over rationality and reason, grew in response to the historical, sociological, psychological, and political contexts of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. 

HERE ARE SOME GOTHIC LITERATURE TITLES YOU MAY RECOGNIZE:

 

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Dracula by Bram Stoker

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

practically everything by Edgar Allen Poe

The IB Connection:

Originating in England in the 2nd half of the 18th century, Gothic literature has influenced literature all over the world. The English Gothic novel also led to new novel types such as the German Schauerroman (the "shudder novel") and the French roman noir (black novel). These works were often more horrific and violent than the English Gothic novel, and n the 1900's, a new country joined in: the Goticheskiy roman v Rossii (Gothic novel in Russia). Of course, in the United States, Gothic Literature has taken off with sub-genres from Southern Gothic to Steampunk, comics, and horror. Now films, shows, games, and music are influenced by this genre!
