Feedback

Interesting scope of Gothic novels and films studied throughout the term and is overall a very enjoyable subject as it looks at interesting elements of what makes the genre.

Continue to provide an interesting scope of Gothic texts but reduce the burden by offering students a choice of a lower number of novels that must be read in full across the 12 weeks.
