Tickets only FREE Gothic Bookclub Himself Gothic Bookclub Himself by Jess Kidd

When Mahony returns to Mulderrig, a speck of a place on Ireland's west coast, he brings only his handsome face, a photograph of his too-young, long-lost mother, and a determination to do battle with the village's lies.Mahony also somehow wakes the dead from their graves, those folk who once lived here, with their foggy memories and hidden stories, floating greyly amongst the unseeing living. No one though - living or dead - will tell what happened to the teenage mother who abandoned him as a baby. Despite Mahony's certainty that more than one of them knows.Between Mulderrig's sly priest, an implacable nurse and a caustic elderly actress throwing herself into her final village play, this beautiful and blackly comic debut novel creates in crystal-clear, musical language an unforgettable world of strange kindnesses, bloody violence and buried secrets.

 

Jess Kidd had kindly agreed to come to the bookclub to discuss the book with us.

Monday 29th October 2018:  9am – 1pm 

The beauty of confidently teaching the gothic is that it gives students a fun and unique angle on many of the GCSE texts, allowing them to include literary context in their critical analyses and exam responses.  Approaching 19th century literature and Shakespeare through a gothic lens shines a new light on intriguing aspects of the texts and enables students to focus on important symbols and refine their language analysis. 

Strawberry Hill House in Twickenham is the true home of Gothic. Built in the 18th century by the writer, antiquarian and social commentator Horace Walpole, this unique curiosity of a castle inspired the first Gothic Novel ‘The Castle of Otranto’ and its quirky, labyrinthine interiors create the perfect atmosphere for an immersive Gothic learning experience.  

This CPD session, designed to support the GCSE English curriculum, will demonstrate a fresh approach to teaching Gothic context with an interactive tour of the House linking its internal spaces to a range of texts plus a lecture on the origins of the genre from Dr Peter Howell of St Mary’s University. In addition there will be workshops on exploring Gothic character and setting in Shakespeare, and how to create and use effective teaching resources to investigate Gothic tropes back in the classroom. 

The training takes place at Strawberry Hill House, 268 Waldegrave Road, Twickenham TW1 4ST (www.strawberryhillhouse.org.uk

Cost per delegate: £30, two places for £50. Refreshments included. 

STOP PRESS: The Lost Treasures of Strawberry Hill exhibition of masterpieces from Horace Walpole’s Collection opens on 20th October and the “What Is Gothic?” tour of the house will include an opportunity to view this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition.
