This series introduces the students to the gothic as broad traditions/genres for those taking A Level English Literature. Specific texts will be mentioned and examined, but not in the detail of text-/author-centred series; the primary aim is to consider how various example texts might fit (or perhaps not fit) received wisdom concerning what gothic “is.”.
English Teacher, Writer, Independent Academic
The Gothic series is tailored to AOs 3, 4, & 5 of the incoming AS/A Level English Literature courses primarily, but AOs 1 & 2 will also be accessed. The proposed series are short, the intention being that students/teachers might make use of them early in the courses of study, before in-depth textual study begins.
