Coming Soon: Gothic Lit

As you plan your reading for the coming months, please take note that the last two weeks of October (tentatively planned for October 17-28) will feature a tour of Pre-Victorian Gothic Literature (published before about 1840)

Pre-Victorian Gothic literature includes

  • The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole’s
  • The Mysteries of Udolpho or The Romance of the Forest by Anne Radcliffe
  • The Monk by Matthew Lewis
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
  • And much more.

We’ll be preparing an introductory form with more reading ideas, book summaries, and links to online reviews.  Sign up will begin (probably) at the end of next week. Stay tuned!

If you want to help pull together book lists, write book summaries, and/or find quotes from bloggers or reviewers online, please send me an email at rebecca[at]rebeccareid[dot]com.
