What do Harry Potter and Dracula have in common? More than you might think! For the darker elements of the series, J.K. Rowling draws on a literary movement of the 18th and 19th centuries known as the Gothic. Join Julia O'Connell, writer of the blog The Gothic Library, in taking an in-depth look at the Gothic influences on Harry Potter, from The Castle of Otranto to The Picture of Dorian Gray.
