Readings for Thurs

Posted: October 6, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hi all. Readings to go up soon. I’m at the emergency room right now. Will post them as soon as they let me go home.

Here we go. Readings below (PDFs) — please download and print out / bring as e-copies to class on computer, your choice. Oh, also, read ’em, of course. These are all short stories from the 1950s or thereabouts. They are not particularly long, and you’ll find them much easier to read than, e.g., Dracula. See you in class Thursday, where we will also watch the last 10 minutes of Nosferatu. Be ready to discuss! Think especially about this: how do these mid-century representations of vampires differ from late 19th/early 20th century representations of vampires?
