Gothic Doubling and the Double, Gothically by Katherine Bowers

Over on the Facebook site, Bill has shared this very interesting article about the Double as a Gothic trope. Written by Katherine Bowers, ‘Gothic Doubling and the Double, Gothically’ looks at Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Double (1846) and how it has been reproduced and, as it were, doubled in films.

One Response to Gothic Doubling and the Double, Gothically by Katherine Bowers

  1. Thanks for posting this K. We are doing Dorian Gray as vampire on the MA this week and the idea of doubling and spooky portraits came up a lot in our discussions of Carmilla. Varney too has a portrait. I can tie this in to my OGOM essay on vampiric portraiture for the session.
