Homework Help: English

Posted by Franco on Monday, November 22, 2010 at 10:12am.

Can you please check this paragraph on Frankenstein and the tradition of the Gothic novel. Thank you very much.

1)Gothic novels reached their popularity at the end of 18th century. The adjective “Gothic” was first used in architecture and then applied to literature by Horace Walpole, who subtitled his novel “The Castle of Otranto” “A Gothic Story”.
2)The first Gothic characteristic of Frankenstein is evident in the presence of grotesque elements as it appears, for example, in the description of the monster. He has a yellow skin, dull,watery eyes, and black lips.
3)Another characteristic of the Gothic novel in Frankenstein is the presence of mystery. In the book Mary Shelley never tells the reader how Frankenstein is (was?) really created.
4) The only thing we know about the monster is that Victor used the limbs of dead bodies to create the body of the monster.
5)Another characteristic that is in many Gothic novels is the desolate environment. The story of Frankenstein begins and ends in the arctic ice. In the beginning of the story, Walloon’s ship is surrounded by ice and can’t move.
