LA Code: 

This term we will continue exploring the themes of gothic literature but from a particular author, Edgar Allen Poe. His poetry and short stories, known for their macabre and mystery, have fascinated readers all the way through to today. His influence can be seen in popular culture from film, music through to style and art. The first block will be primarily about building critical analysis, and writing skills in preparation for externals using Poe as an authorial theme. Block two will begin to switch focus away from the gothic and towards visual/oral texts but will be decided through class discussion this block.
