A Comparison of Style, Language and Setting in Gothic Literature: In Horace Walpole’s Castle of Otranto and Edgar Allan Poe’s Short Stories

I wrote a lengthy paper last year during my first semester of graduate coursework with SNHU, which I’ve since left. I keep going back to it – after it was finished and graded, my professor told me that I should submit it to academic publications for peer review.  I have not done this – I honestly don’t know where to start – but I am attaching it to this post for those of you who are interested in reading it.

This analysis examines the intersection of psychology and philosophy in literature, culture, and history, specifically in terms of gothic literature.  I have always a resounding fascination with gothic literature, so it seemed appropriate that for my first semester, I choose a subject that dug deeply into at least one faction of it.

Please be aware that by clicking the below link you will be DOWNLOADING a PDF version of the paper!

Happy reading!
