A common element in literature over the last three hundred years has been to examine how change -- whether ultimately good or bad – has often been met with fear and repulsion. This class will examine how a fear of change has manifested itself as a concern in classic works in the culture of the post-1660 modern world, and how those fears may be symbolized by villains, government, foreigners, and even monsters. Works examined will include Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights, Dracula, and Moonraker. (Counts as English 102, 211, or History 102)
