WHERE DO THE GOTHIC STORIES TAKE PLACE? WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT TO FIND IN A GOTHIC TEXT? Such novels are often set in the medieval period, often in castles or churches, where there are often dungeons, underground passages and sliding panels.
There are most frequently ghosts, dreams, prophecies, omens, portents, mysterious disappearances, overwrought emotions and other unexplained, sensational and supernatural occurrences as well as usually an innocent heroine and a ruthless and lustful villain. Gothic villains were sent to test and attempt to steal the heroine’s virtue or to try to bend the innocent heroine’s will to their own.
The main aim of such novels was to evoke fear and terror in the reader.
The Gothic Hero came to be characterised as someone who was often weighed down by a secret guilt or sorrow, very creative and imaginative but also proud and often reckless.
