Learning Objectives • All: Understand the main features of gothic, romantic and modernist genres. • Most: Apply this knowledge in order to identify what genres a range of texts are. • Some: Explore the features of each genre, justifying opinions by discussion effects of these features. E/D D C-A

  19. The importance of context! • The historical context (events/people/politics of the time in which something was written) usually hugely influences the content of a text! • As history changes- so did ideas and, by extension, so did literature. • E.g. Macbeth (a play about witches and overthrowing government) was written, and was definitely influenced by: • Witch trials/ hunts • The Gunpowder plot.

  20. TPS: What do you think of when you hear the word gothic?

  21. Conventions of the Gothic: • Generally involve elements of the horror and romance genres. • Sinister, usually isolated settings – castles, dungeons, secret passages, winding stairs, haunted buildings. • Extreme landscapes – rugged mountains, thick forests, generally bad weather (pathetic fallacy). • Omens, ancestral curses and secrets • An element of the supernatural.

  22. Gothic Characters • Tyrants, villains,maniacs. • Persecuted maidens, femme fatales, madwomen, fallen women. • Ghosts, monsters, demons. • Byronic heroes – intelligent, sophisticated and educated, but struggling with emotional conflicts, a rebellious moody attitude, a troubled past and ‘dark’ attributes.

  24. Classic examples in film. • For each of the following trailers, write a sentence which shows they are part of the gothic genre. ‘(Film name) is part of the gothic genre because it includes…

  25. Starter: Romanticism • What is the meaning of the adjective romantic? -an expressive and pleasurable feeling from an emotional attraction towards another person associated with love. This is very different from Romantic- ensure you don’t get the two mixed up!

  26. Conventions of Romanticism: • Poetry = “the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings” (Wordsworth) • Nature massively influences this movement- Romantics saw it as transcendental (a way of being at one with God), but also threateningly powerful. • The supernaturalis also occasionally used(therefore often has close links to Gothic)

  27. Conventions of Romanticism: • Believed in destructive side of sexuality/love and links between desire and death. • The importance of imagination- dreams/ daydreams were significant. • Would often write about outer body experiences. • Made literature less elitist, interested in the stories of the common man/ lower class.

  28. What makes this painting ‘Romantic?’ Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog, by Caspar David Friedrich, 1818

  29. Classic examples in film. • For each of the following trailers, write a sentence which shows they are part of the Romantic genre. ‘(Film name) is part of the Romantic genre because it includes…

  31. Conventions of modernism • Experimental; search for new forms; break with the traditions of the past. • “Make it new!” urged the poet Ezra Pound • Often Non-realistic (e.g. Picasso) • Fragmented artworks (e.g. Cubism, modernist poetry) to reflect unstructured modern existence. • Influence of modern psychology, e.g. Freud (i.e. stream-of-consciousness), and by new technology (the world seemed ‘new’) • Urban experience a key theme (city life)

  32. Complexity and Modernism • Heavily influenced by World War and its destructive nature. • Modernist literature is often difficult to understand(e.g. 100 pages of unpunctuated prose with no paragraphs …) • This is deliberate! To reflect the complexity of modern life • e.g. in light of Freud’s insights/ experience of living in modern cities/ new technology

  33. What makes this painting ‘Modernist?’ Guernica by Picasso, 1937.

  34. Classic examples in film. • For each of the following trailers, write a sentence which shows they are part of the Modernist genre. ‘(Film name) is part of the Modernist genre because it includes…

  35. Poetry and genres! • We are going to read three poems. • TASK: As we read, try to decipher what genre each poem belongs to. • Extend yourself by: • Trying to identify if any of the poems have elements of more than one genre. • Noting what features prove the genre of each text.

  36. Poetry and genres! • You are going to be split into 3 groupsand be assigned a poem. • TASK: Make a presentation on your assigned poem, exploring: • What genre(s) it belongs to, • What features of that genre show that your opinion is correct, • The effect these features have on a reader, and your personal opinion.

  37. Poetry and genres! • People will now conduct their presentations. • As people present: Make notes and annotate your copy of each poem so that you can clearly identify the unique features of each genre for future reference. • Be respectful and ensure you are fully focused as people present their ideas.

  38. Independent work • Create a collage of words and images of your impressions of either: • One of the genres we have explored OR • One of the poems we have read. THIS IS GOOD PRACTICE FOR YOUR MULTIMODAL COURSEWORK- BE CREATIVE.
