Depending on reading level/speed students will need less than an hour to read the first and last story. The middle story is longer and can be read in perhaps an hour and a half.

This class on Gothic literature covers topics that are disturbing.  The stories include death, epidemics, murder, poisoning, a supernatural headless ghost, the post-Civil War South, and sleeping by the dead.

I am happy to provide more information about how these topics will be covered in class.  You know your learner best!
