Mysterious Influences: Religion, Empathy and Illness in Victorian Queer Gothic – Bibliography

Today’s post is a guest post! This is @BronteSchiltz biography from her amazing Sunday Gothic class with us.

You can tell I didn’t do it because it is fully and correctly formatted! So many good sources here. This is an ‘influences’ bibliography so not everything in it was talked about directly or referenced in the class. There’s lots of extra literature to sink your teeth into!!

This started off as a story blog to share the little fictions that I like to write but it's turned into something a bit more Goth! I'm Dr Sam Hirst and I research the Gothic, theology and romance and at the moment I'm doing free Gothic classes online! We also have readalongs, watchalongs and reading groups. And I post fun little Gothic bits when I have the chance. Find me on twitter @RomGothSam
