Transcript of Gothic Elements
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/
Google Images Example From The Book: Example From The Book: An example of a supernatural, or otherwise inexplicable event, would be when Victor creates a living creature from deceased peoples body parts. The most supernatural part about it is that he is able to bring the body to life.
(Pg. 70) An example of women in distress would be when the monster wandered into a hut with children that scream and a woman who faints at the sight
of him. (Pg. 129) The End Example From The Book: An example of omens, dreams, and visions is when Victor fell asleep after creating the monster and had a disturbing dream, possibly foreshadowing the death of Elizabeth. "I thought I saw Elizabeth, in the bloom of health, walking in the streets of Ingolstadt. Delighted and surprised, I embraced her, but as I imprinted the first kiss on her lips, they became livid with the hue of death; her features appeared to change, and I thought that I held the corpse of my dead mother in my arms; a shroud enveloped her form, and I saw the grave-worms crawling in the folds of the flannel." said Victor as he explained his disturbing dream. (Pg. 71)
