Gothic Literature, help? Watch
Does anyone know any good Gothic poetry, prose and dramas? Thanks!
I haven't read Northanger Abbey but it might be a cool one as its a pastiche of Gothic writing, and was written by Jane Austen, so it's a bit unusual.
Great Expectations has some gothic elements but is probably not strictly a gothic novel, you could talk about why and why not it fits the gothic genre but maybe focus more on the other books. I would recommend the Picture of Dorian Grey as well. Castle of Otranto (thought to be first gothic novel) by Horace Walpole and The Romance of the Forest by Ann Radcliffe are 18th century gothic novels you might like, or you could look into other books those authors have written. I am not sure if Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey would be accepted -she sort of parodies Ann Radcliffe's gothic literature, she uses gothic tropes but overturns them. I would also recommend the short story Turn of the Screw by Henry James and short stories and poetry by Edgar Allen Poe (American writer of 19th century) like the Fall of House of Usher and the Tell-tale heart. Another poet known for gothic literature is Christina Rossetti. and def Frankenstein and wuthering heights I would recommend, they are 19th century novels.
