"From wild and remote landscapes to vulnerable heroines; from violent and erotic fantasies to supernatural and uncanny happenings; Gothic fiction has intrigued and unsettled readers for more than two centuries. How do these works reflect the political, social and cultural contexts in which they were written? "
Saturday, 16 October 2021
Join us for our very first 'Literally Gothic', Alderney's new one-day celebration of Gothic literature. Together with our five fascinating speakers, we will explore the origins of "gothic", the themes that bind the literary genre together, and how they are reflected in the works of our guest authors.
