Horace Walpole wrote the first Gothic novel in 1764. Author Julia Buckley will look at Walpole’s style and his connection to both Shakespeare and Gothic architecture. The program shows how the art of Edward Gorey, films of Tim Burton, and many genres of literature have descended from the Gothic ideal: things that remain in our unconscious to emerge generation after generation in our artistic work.
