LALW301 Monster Madness 3 cr.


We will be rounding up the usual suspects: the appalling and tragic monster and his equally tragic and appalling creator; the charismatic vampire and his bevy of vamps; the traveling salesman who finds himself transformed into a giant dung-beetle. More broadly, the course will study the idea of monstrosity, and in ways in which monsters represent the shadowy side of human nature: what people fear and what they desire. The syllabus will include Frankenstein, Dracula, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Kafka’s Metamorphosis, and Nabokov’s Lolita.
