Hume also supports this claim by stating that the creature, which was meant to be beautiful, reflects in its outward form Victor’s inward deformity. He gives an example with the early history of the monster that craves love, which is an ironic reproduction of Frankenstein 's personality, for he can neither express love, nor respond properly to human emotions. The result of this intercourse between Gothic and Romantic elements is a novel that is far more complex and sophisticated than the work of many of her contemporaries by provoking philosophical, ethical and moral questions left to the reader to answer, as said by Nicole
Gothic Literature is a writing style that combines the elements of Romanticism, such as individuality and high passions, with situations of fear and suspense. This subgenre of Romantic Literature uses emotion as a technique to create metaphorical gender coding. By presenting overflowing emotions as a living or animated experience, characters in a Gothic work are given an additional layer of traits.

Sublimity creates terror through obscurity and uncertainty of potentially, irrationally terrible situations, such as murder or rape.

Through this, it is evident that corruptive influences and desires exist in every individual. Stevenson also warns readers of the all-consuming nature of evil. This is indisputably epitomised in the character os Dr. Jekyll as he succumbs to his “other self”, Hyde, and is unable to escape from the insidious nature of Hyde. Only death was able to relieve Dr. Jekyll of his immoral and “wicked” side (Stevenson 1689). Therefore, the text could be viewed as a 19th century social novel that allegorises the evils and immoral vices of
nkenstein is a novel written by Marry Shelley about a student of science named Victor Frankenstein , who make a monstrous but responsive being in an unconventional technical experiment. Shelley wrote it when her age was eighteen years old and the novel came when she was at the age of twenty. The first edition of her book was available in London and the second one in France.

When you read the book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley you may oversee something very important that could possibly answer many questions for you. One question it has answered for me was what was the purpose for writing Frankenstein and to me it really doesn 't have much to do with it just being a horror story. To me it is about a man who defy 's the laws of nature and because of that experienceses the after math of bringing the deceased back to life. Now another thing that may be racing through your mind is why exactly would Mary Shelley title this The Modern Prometheus. Well, in my research I had found out that according to Rebecca Dudczak the one reason was that Pometheus experiences consequences from power and enlightenment,(Dudczak) just as Victor Frankenstein does in the novel.

Not in vain, the maintenance of plausibility is one of the main concerns of the two genres to which we are referring here. The intrinsic verisimilitude of Gothic fiction is achieved not by the reader identification with the daily reality described (the authors of this type of production make a considerable effort –often reviled– so that the reader creates possible facts that, in fact, are impossible; thus, for example, we observe that authenticity in “Carmilla” or in Dracula, whose main characters, the monsters, in this case vampires, are still considered real by many people) but by the sense of reality offered to the reader by the authors (Rodríguez Pequeño, 1995: 134). In the case of detective fiction, the reader identification with the fictional detective takes place (remember Agatha Christie 's productions, for example), as well as occurs with the

All the characters in this novel are driven by their lust, passion, desire and ambition from the very beginning to the very end of the novel. The tragic anti-hero of Wuthering Heights, Heathcliff, is completely an archetypal Gothic character. He is mysterious, dark and extremely dangerous. He is wholly dependent on revenge for recalled past wrongs and his passion is all-consuming.
