Edgar Allan Poe, Illustrated

Edgar Allan Poe, Illustrated | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

Literature and the visual arts have fed off of each other for as long as the two have existed. It should be no surprise to anyone reading this that the evocative imagery of the works of Edgar Allan Poe have been complemented with illustrations numerous times in their publication history.

Hugo Gonzalez's curator insight, March 20, 1:11 PM

When it comes to writing, reading old literature from these deceases writer really helps.  It may be old but it can teach a writer a thing or two about making a paper more fascinating.  It can create a imagery if the words are visual instead of just spoken.

The Sylph: The Duchess of Devonshire’s pre-Gothic and pre-Romantic Novel

The Sylph: The Duchess of Devonshire’s pre-Gothic and pre-Romantic Novel | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

In recent years, Georgiana Cavendish, nee Spencer, the Duchess of Devonshire, has enjoyed renewed interest due to the 2008 film The Duchess starring Keira Knightley, as well as her being an ancestral aunt to the late Princess Diana. But it was not until my friend and fellow literary scholar, Ellen Moody, author ofTrollope on the Net, told me that it was believed the Duchess had also written a novel that I really became interested in learning more about her.

THE HORROR! THE FEAR! Or how to kill a woman in 10000 different ways: L.Paulais, Paula Maxa, the Princess of Horror and the world of violent entertainment | The Gothic Imagination

Introducing the prominent French horror theatre in my previous post gave me the opportunity to write about everything connected to the theme of this interesting theatre and its gore representations, as well as the theme of horror in general.  Many enthusiasts brought together around this legendary venue over the years became experts in the field and prepared the foundations for the next generations and the evolution of their talent. One of the most important individuals, when we are talking about the Grand-Guignol, were the actors who brought everyday horrors to life with their exquisite performance on stage. L.Paulais and Paula Maxa marked the genre in theatre in France during the sixty years of existence and work of the Grand-Guignol.

Charles Brockden Brown | The Gothic Wanderer | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

Charles Brockden Brown is often cited as America’s first Gothic novelist, but frequently, James Fenimore Cooper and Nathaniel Hawthorne are credited with taking the Gothic out of European castles and placing it in the American forest. The truth is that Brown deserves that credit as well in his finest Gothic novel,Edgar Huntly, or, Memoirs of a Sleepwalker, published in 1799.

O clone e a teoria da monstruosidade (Marcio Markendorf)

No imaginário do horror, os monstros são engendrados como imagens desmedidas, frequentemente concebidas como figuras persecutórias de excesso e/ou de exceção, e muitas vezes criadas com base na imediata oposição ao humano ou natural. Ao analisar obras de cientificção da literatura e do cinema, este trabalho pretende refletir acerca do corpo clônico – uma variante moderna dodoppelgänger – e sua relação com a teoria da monstruosidade, evidenciando como a tecnociência desampara os parâmetros naturalizados da ontologia do monstro ao apresentar o aterrador sob a identidade integral do ser humano.

Um lugar para o medo (Camila Mello)

"Este trabalho é um ensaio acerca do medo e de suas ambiguidades. É resultado dos estudos que realizamos sobre o romance gótico desde o século XVIII até hoje, tendo como foco principal produções ficcionais no Brasil, no Canadá e na Inglaterra. Aqui, buscamos relacionar percepções subjetivas, preceitos teóricos e obras ficcionais a fim de discutir diferentes noções de medo, principalmente em relação à sua localização espacial. Tendo isso em vista, traçamos um questionamento sobre a casa como um lugar para o medo sob a luz das ideias de Gastón Bachelard. Traçamos, dentro da casa, uma espécie de mapa dos acontecimentos que geram a noção de medo, concluindo que o porão é, muitas vezes, o local mais propício para essa manifestação, tendo em vista suas características fundamentais.

At The Mountains Of Madness, by Richard Coyle

At The Mountains Of Madness, by Richard Coyle | Gothic Literature | Scoop.it

“At The Mountains of Madness” was written by HP Lovecraft in 1931, originally a serialised story published in Astounding Stories magazine in the US. While considered by fans to be part of the Cthulhu Mythos stories that HPL is most famous for, some academics argue that the author was actually ‘demythologising’ much of his earlier work. Whichever it is, the story is massively popular, and there are talks of a movie adaptation by Steven Spielberg and Guillermo Del Toro in the offing. 

This 2010 adaptation comprises 5 episodes, originally aired on BBC Radio 7, and offered here in exclusive EXTENDED EDITIONS. You will find an additional 30 mins of terror-filled audio within these five episodes!
