English Literature students blog about London's largest Gothic exhibition

English 29 January 2015


A group of undergraduate English Literature students took time out from their courses to visit the popular exhibition Terror and Wonder: The Gothic Imagination at the British Library.

The students are from the BA English Literature and BA English Literature and Creative Writing courses and are taking a module on gothic literature, culture and history.

Interested by the exhibition's gothic objects and atmosphere they have produced a blog site in which they reflect on the success of the exhibition, the reasons for the terror it evoked and the wonder that audiences experienced.
