learning goal: to measurably increase your understanding of primary aspects of the gothic imagination in European painting from the 1780s to 1830s

in pairs, (virtually) walk through your assigned rooms of the exhibit in London’s Tate Gallery, “Gothic Nightmares”

Read the texts, then pick the painting that most echoes your reading of Frankenstein. In other words, which painting opens the doors of your mind most fully to the spirit of Mary Shelley’s novel?

Be ready to project and explain your selection, as a way of summarizing the contents of your assigned room.
