Next spring’s course for nonmajors: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

How could you not love this reading list?

  • Arthur Conan Doyle. The Adventures & Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
  • Rider Haggard. King Solomon’s Mines; Allan Quatermain; She (Published as a single volume)
  • Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume I
  • Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume II
  • Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier
  • Sax Rohmer. The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu
  • Robert Louis Stevenson. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
  • Bram Stoker. Dracula
  • Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Years Leagues Under the Sea (NB: “20,000 years” is how long it took to compile the book order.)
  • H. G. Wells, The Invisible Man
  • H. G. Wells, The Island of Doctor Moreau
  • H. G. Wells, The War Between the Worlds

My plan is to pretend as though the movie never happened. At all.

(And the rest of my schedule is: one course bought out through accumulated overload, a 300-level Victorian lit survey, a 400-level course on humanities computing, and a section of thesis-writing for the honors program. I heart the spring . . . though that could just be the lack of fall break talking.)

    Thanks, Alex. All fixed. (I think.)

    And you couldn’t offer the course when I could actually *take* it because….?

    *sigh*

    I’ll probably follow along in the reading, though. All but Stoker’s is new to me.
