Gothic Elements Women in Distress Supernatural
Or Otherwise Inexplicable Events Omens, Dreams, and Visions A character may have a disturbing dream, vision, or some phenomenon that may be seen as a foreshadow of coming events. Dramatic, amazing events occur, such as ghosts or inanimate objects coming to life. In some works, the events are given a natural explanation, while in others the events are truly supernatural. The female characters often face events that leave them fainting, terrified, screaming, and/or sobbing. Bibliography http://schoolworkhelper.net/gothic-elements/
