Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Module 7 Post Assessment
Rime of the Ancient Mariner
This image shows Dr. Victor being paronoid and feeling afraid of his own creation.

It shows Gothic elements by the vocabulary the author used to describe the levels of horror the Dr. was experiencing."Sometimes my pulse beat so quickly and hardly that I felt the palpitation of every artery; at others, I nearly sank to the ground through languor and extreme weakness. Mingled with this horror."
This image represents elements that could appear in "Frankenstein", showing how Dr. Victor thought of his creation, a "monster."

It shows Gothic elements by providing the traditional horror and frightfulness to the scene. "I started from my sleep with horror; a cold dew covered my forehead, my teeth chattered, and every limb became convulsed: when...the miserable monster whom I had created."
The picture I chose I felt accurately depicted how the mariner must have viewed the Death-in-Life (the woman) as she approached the boat.
It is a gothic element by providing the mystery to the scene. Mystery is one of the most common technique used in the Gothic stories. "Alas! (thought I, and my heart beat loud) How fast she nears and nears! Are those her sails that glance in the sun, Like restless gossameres?"
One of the main things that stuck out for me when reading this poem was the way the Mariner described the Death-in-Life female. At that moment, she was his savior.
It incorporates Gothic elements by,again,the appropriate use of vocabulary.The tone is a bit surprised and makes the scene suspenseful for the reader."Her lips were red, her looks were free,Her locks were yellow as gold:Her skin was as white as leprosy."
The gothic element used in this scene, represented by this image, was through the atmosphere of mystery and suspense as to what happened to the people on the boat. "Four times fifty living men,(And I heard nor sigh nor groan)
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
They dropped down one by one."
This image could definitely represent elements that could appear in the gothic literature "Dracula" because the elements used here were "An atmosphere of mystery and suspense" simply based on the setting of this scene and it accurately depicts the spooky scene in the story, "When we were alone and had heard the last of the footsteps die out up the road, we silently, and as if by ordered intention, followed the Professor to the tomb. He unlocked the door, and we entered, closing it behind us."
This image represents the element "Omens, portents, visions" as well as "Supernatural or otherwise inexplicable events." The Omen was used to foreshadow that Lucy was about to hurt those as the story stated, "Oh, God, how it made me shudder to see it! With a careless motion, she flung to the ground, callous as a devil, the child that up to now she had clutched strenuously to her breast, growling over it as a dog growls over a bone. " This scene from "Mama" was instantly what I imagined when I first read this line. It also portrays Supernatural events by the whole structure of the story: Ghosts, blood, inhuman qualities etc.
Another image that represents elements that could appear in "Dracula" was through the use of "The metonymy of gloom and horror." In this case, the reader identified the dark, white dress, slow motion of Lucy as "scary" due to the repeating image several horror films known to scare the reader. "He pointed, and far down the avenue of yews we saw a white figure advance, a dim white figure, which held something dark at its breast. The figure stopped...and showed in startling prominence a dark-haired woman... We could not see the face, for it was bent down over what we saw to be a fair-haired child."
This image represents elements that could appear in "Dracula" through the use of " Supernatural or otherwise inexplicable events." The scene in which the Professor cut off Lucy's head gave the story a more supernatural effect by their belief that cutting her head and filling her mouth with garlic could keep her pure and from waking up as the demon she once was.
This image represents elements that could appear in "Dracula" through the use of "Women in distress." In this case, Lucy reached out for Arthur wanting him to join her. She was almost successful if it wasn't for Van Helsing,"As for Arthur, he seemed under a spell, moving his hands from his face, he opened wide his arms. She was leaping for them, when Van Helsing sprang forward and held between them his little golden crucifix. She recoiled from it, and, with a suddenly distorted face, full of rage, dashed past him as if to enter the tomb."
