Thank you very much for your corrections.
Here are some more sentences I'd like you to check.

1) An example of a desolate place is Frankenstein’s laboratory, where the scientist is confined in order to create the monster.
2) Frankenstein is not set in a dark castle like many Gothic novels. However, it presents some characteristics of them (Can you use “of them”?)
3) Grotesque elements are present in the description of the monster.
4) It is the old man's evil eye which vexes (also to vex) doctor Frankenstein.
He is confined in a small cottage (but “to live in a small cottage”?)
5) He takes him an hour to place (can you use “put”) his head in the room.
Another characteristic of the Gothic novel is the desolate environment: For example, the story begins and ends on the Arctic ice. (Can I use a period instead of a colon before For example?)

    1) OK

    2) Frankenstein is not set in a dark castle as many gothic novels are; however, it has some of those characteristics.

    3) OK

    4) It is the old man's evil eye which vexes Dr. Frankenstein.
    He is confined to a small cottage.
    He lives in a small cottage.

    5) It takes him an hour to place/put his head in the room. This makes no sense to me.

    Another characteristic of the gothic novel is the desolate environment: For example, the story begins and ends on the Arctic ice. (Can I use a period instead of a colon before For example?) <~~yes
