Gothic Horror Writing

See all News

We have been learning about Gothic Horror in English and have been discussing how an atmosphere and supernatural events can lead the writer and reader down a dark path. Learners have been putting forward ideas of their own interpretation, which you can see below. All learners allowed their imagination to run wild. Here is an example:

As I walked up to the asylum, I was filled with a deep despair. I arrived at the gates of ‘All Saints Asylum’. The wind was blowing the gate back and forth with a noise like someone was draggingtheir nails down a chalkboard. Trees moved with the rhythm of the gate, as if someone was playing an orchestra. Crows were flying past every so often, screaming loudly like a choir to the orchestra.
