This course examines several major works from Stoker's literary oeuvre: The Snake's Pass (1890), Dracula (1897), The Jewel of Seven Stars (1903), The Lady of the Shroud (1909), and The Lair of the White Worm (1911) and selected short stories. Stoker is one of the more complex figures among the Anglo-Irish literary tradition, so the author and his writing is placed within the social and cultural contexts of late 19th and early 20th century Ireland and England, as well as within broader literary theoretical frameworks - psychoanalytic, gender, and postcolonial criticism among them - for which Stoker's tales continue to provide such rich fodder. (Cross-listed with ENGL 8446).

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 1160 and ENGL 2410 or ENGL 2420; ENGL 2320 recommended; or instructor permission
