    Gothic literature

    Includes opposing ideas , like in frankenstein

    :good/evil, innocence/guilt, etc.

    Mary Shelly expands this concept, and we can

    see it in this story because there is no hero or

    villan but we as readers feel attracted and

    repulsed by V. Frankenstein and the monster.

    Writing style

    Diction : During this two chapters Mary Shelley

    selected words that arent very common, or they

    exaggerate things. From the diction we can know

    the style and get the imagery the author tries tomake us sense.

    Imagery: In this chapters M.S. make us feel the

    monster like a horrible thing and the nature like a

    sublime one.

    Style: We think is rich and flowery.

    Writing style

    We think that its rich because it uses a large

    vocabulary: quoting from the book

    df page 139-140Abhorred monster! Fiend that thouart! The tortures of hell are too mild a vengeance

    for thy crimes. Wretched devil! You reproach me

    with your creation, come on, then, that I may

    extinguish the spark which I so negligently

    Writing style

    And flowery because it describes the enviroment witha lot of details. Now quoting from 134

    I spent the following day roaming through the valley. I stoodbeside the sources of the Arveiron, which take their rise in aglacier, that with slow pace is advancing down from thesummit of the hills to barricade the valley. The abrupt sides ofvast mountains were before me; the icy wall of the glacieroverhung me; a few shattered pines were scattered around;and the solemn silence of this glorious presence-chamber ofimperial nature was broken only by the brawling waves or thefall of some vast fragment, the thunder sound of theavalanche or the cracking, reverberated along the mountains,of the accumulated ice.

    Chapter 9-10

    When Victor thinks of committing suicide, it

    represents one of the characteristics of the gothic

    literature. H e thought in suicide while he is in the

    river (he feel like in an abyss of guilt), and inchapter 10 he feels freed while he is in the

    mountains (happy state of mind).

    The river (low) and the mountains (high) are

    metaphors to express the dualism.
