Course Description

This course will examine the history of Dark and Supernatural Fiction from its beginning to the present day. Whether we realize it or not, the Supernatural is part of our lives and world. There will be examples of Dark Literature for us to read. We will deal mainly with the short story and discuss its effectiveness in the hands of the masters such as Edgar A. Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, H.P. Lovecraft, Joyce Carol Oates, and Shirley Jackson. We will explore the values of dark literature and hopefully come to an understanding of both its popularity and relevance. We will hopefully find that some of us have experienced something supernatural in our lives.
