Nineteenth-century British writers created the some of the most memorable and enduring monsters. In this course we will study literary monsters of the nineteenth century in order to think about the ways that literary monsters reflect notions of identity and difference, self and other. We will also consider depictions of monsters within the context of the immense social, ideological and cultural changes that occurred over the course of the century. How do notions about monstrosity reflect anxieties and desires in relation to industrialism, scientific and technological development, colonial expansion, and changing notions about gender roles and sexuality? Readings will include _Frankenstein_, _Dracula_, _Jekyll and Hyde_, among others.
