Victorian Horror Novels

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Monsters Within ...

Victorian Horror Novels

Taught by Professor Eric R. Williams and 2 others | 35 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Examine why many of the monsters featured in Victorian novels are more human-like than your standard understanding of a monster. Looking at Frankenstein's monster and Count Dracula as well as touching on Dorian Gray, Dr. Jekyll, and Bertha Mason, among others, Professor Cognard-Black explores how the Victorians projected the most disturbing parts of being a human into these fictional freaks and ultimately created enduring monsters—ones that continue to shock and thrill contemporary Americans.
