Description: What makes an “other”? Where did characters like Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Count of Monte Cristo come from, and why do they transfix us into the 21st Century? Much of the literature we describe as “classic” today, particularly that from the nineteenth century, involves some sort of supernatural “other” squaring off against a human opponent. Furthermore, many of the themes explored even over a century ago are strikingly relevant to the modern day. In “Other” man, students will engage with nineteenth Century literature across novel excerpts, films, and summaries through time. We will discuss changes made from the source material. Students will widen their knowledge of literature, critically analyze multiple mediums of storytelling, and practice confidence in discussion, presentation, and essay writing.
