Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

This course focuses on the strange works which emerged during the period known as the  'fin-de-siècle' at the end of the 19th century. We will study three novels: Bram Stoker's Dracula, Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray and Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. The course will examine how the novels deal with late-Victorian anxieties about race and class, post-Darwinian fears of 'degeneration' of the species, and the illicit pleasures of breaking with conventions, social, sexual and moral.
