Primary Instructor:

This course will examine literary depictions of supernatural or fantastic events, looking at folk tales where supernatural occurrences are described matter-of-factly in addition to gothic tales where the nature of reality and its limits are often unknown. We will explore a variety of topics, ranging from the roles of these stories and sets of beliefs within a given culture to the development of a scientific worldview. Readings will include primarily fictional works, from ancient figures like Aesop and Ovid to writers of fairy tales like the Brothers Grimm to modern writers like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, as well as critical and historical works.

Course Requirements:

Students will be required to write a number of short low-stakes assignments as well as three longer essays utilizing close reading skills developed in class. Required reading for each class period will comprise about 30 pages per class day.
