I gave this lecture on the concepts of the sublime and the grotesque in a course on Basic Concepts of Aesthetics on September 5, 2000. I apologize for the poor sound quality and noise from the audience. There are also some abrupt cuts where I removed the voices of students, who were mostly inaudible. If the material interests you, however, it is worth putting up with these problems.

The texts we discuss are Friedrich Schiller’s “On the Sublime” and Flannery O’Connor’s “Some Aspects of the Grotesque in Southern Fiction.”
