Sophia Hadef a Parisienne living in Galway, Ireland, moved from Paris to the Wild Atlantic Way to be immersed in the country she loves the most, surrounded by the gothic atmosphere that Ireland writes about so well. She works in Governance for an American tech corporation, and in her spare time, she reads and writes a lot. For a few years, Sophia was hosting a radio show called The Cure where she was sharing her love for Goth pop and Gothic literature. With this salon, the hope is to share this love with other book lovers in Ireland.
“Gothic Ireland – A Path on The Obscure Literature” will be a salon for all the passionate about dark and gothic literature. Classics or Contemporary, Irish writers are the best when it comes to the gloomy and foggy atmosphere.
Gothic literature is a genre showing the essence of Ireland. Irish writers tend to bring that touch of gloominess into their work, that sense of danger and a mysterious plot. A few questions that we might explore:
- Why did Gothic literature appear; what was the importance of it?
- Why is the Gothic also called the “dark side of Romance”?
- What are the main elements that make a novel Gothic?
- What are the characteristics of Gothic fiction?
- To what extent is Gothic literature characterized by a fascination with death?
- Why do Gothic writers use madness/insanity as a topic?
- What are the best Irish Gothic novels (classics and contemporary)?
- What is the conceptual framework of Gothic literature?
