In it the idea of a traditional ghost story is suggested which shows us forewarning for the rest of the novel. A ghost story relies on atmosphere, often shown through weather and the gothic genre. The weather is a huge signal throughout the novel, which is used as a signal to when terrible things are about to happen. For example, the nine lives causeway is described as ‘submerged and untraceable’, this suggests that Eel Marsh house is miserable and that everything is hidden. From this the reader can see that Susan Hill has explored the theme by creating it as a forewarning through the weather and setting.
The language techniques that Shelley uses in the novel represent the genre of the gothic and also portray the fears and concerns about the era in which it was written. The aspects that can be taken into consideration when analysing the novel is the influence of Shelley’s personal life on the novel, the attitudes of people and family in the era and the character of Frankenstein. Chapter 4 starts immediately with a main feature of the gothic. Pathetic fallacy is a technique that Shelley uses well throughout this chapter as it creates an atmosphere and the reader can emphasise the setting. ‘It was a dreary night of November.’ Where Shelley describes it as a dreary night the reader gains an understanding of the setting of the scene and it is always in the back of the mind.

Chagala LONG BEACH BREAKWATER PROJECT... 2 Long Beach Breakwater Project Needs To Move Forward How important is the quality of the ocean water with regard to marine life and humankind? The answer is simple, it is of vital importance to life both on and off shore. In Long Beach, California at San Pedro Bay there exists the largest container port in the USA. (Sharpsteen, 2010 p. 12,13) ) This busy port, the cargo, and the peripheral utility ships that use it, create pollution from engine exhaust and waste. Long Beach and
Explore the ways Shelley uses setting to contribute to the gothic concept of the novel. Shelley uses setting as a vital contribution to the gothic concept of the novel; Mary said “The very room...he glassy lakes and the high Alps beyond”, would be the pivotal settings in her novel. Shelley knew from this stage that exterior and interior settings would be significant; interior “dark room” which refers to Victor’s laboratory of “filthy creation” in Chapter 4, an epitome of the gothic genre revealing a sense of darkness and seclusion mirroring the eponymous character Frankenstein. The idea of the lake and high Alps can be observed as being influenced by the Romantic poets, Percy and Wodsworth on nature being a restorative agent. Hence Shelley’s use of the exterior setting of the Arctic, which unravels the framework of the novel through epistolary form.
George is immediately disgusted by this ‘that’s a dirty thing to tell around’ and we can already see a negative view of Curley’s wife forming in his mind. The fact that she has no name is significant as ‘Curley’s wife’ implies that she is merely an object or a possession of Curley’s and not someone with her own identity. Another way of looking at this is that Steinbeck is highlighting how insignificant she is as a person to the other men on the ranch and he could be trying to make us feel a bit sorry for her even at this stage. We are told that she ‘got the eye’ which makes her seem promiscuous and not like a very good wife. George uses the phrase ‘Curley’s got ant in his pants’ to put the blame completely onto his wife for his aggressive behaviour.
Such as the works of Edgar Allan Poe darkness of his pieces are in unity with his inner being. The suspenseful and ominous style of “The Pit and the Pendulum” and Poe’s poem “The Lake”, both show the usage of sensory images. Being the “father” of horror stories, Poe’s aids his readers through the power of descriptive writing, grasping their attention with rich sensory imagery that conveys the writer’s emotions. One of Poe’s greatest stories that tricks and strikes terror in our hearts is “The Pit and the Pendulum”. Poe wanted the readers to feel the terror and horror that the narrator felt.
This caused her to turn a blind eye to what he was doing around town with other women. When Lupe gave Don Elias what Don Matilida couldn’t, she hated and resented Lupe and Juana even more because it was like a slap in the face. There was no Love in Don Elias and Dona Matilida’s marriage. Lupe and Miguel’s relationship is wonderful and picture perfect in the beginning of the book. Actually, it is always good.
By showing up late and forgetting the date of the lottery, it seems as though Mrs. Hutchinson is unconcerned with the lottery and the reader gets the false impression that this event is not such a huge ordeal. In fact, Tess doesn’t even express any problems with the lottery until her family is chosen. Ironically, when she is the one picked to get sacrificed she screams, “It isn’t fair, it isn’t right” (Jackson 393). By initially conforming to a negative aspect of society without question then deciding to speak out when her own well being is in jeopardy, Tess displays a hypocritical and selfish character
Miss Strangeworth wrote this letter to Helen and Dan Crane because she didn't agree with their parenting skills, so to Miss Strangeworth they were wrong. Throughout the whole story, Miss Strangeworth showed symbols that related to her malicious ways and how she felt she was better compared to the rest of her town. A symbol in the story that relates how Miss Strangeworth feels empowered in her town, was when she would always write her cruel letters. Miss Strangeworth would write the anonymous letters in her trimmed quill pen, although she had a gold-frost fountain pen. This is a symbol because Miss Strangeworth feels as the people who she is sending these letters to are not important enough to her to use the gold pen.
