This paper examines the Gothic novel era between 1764 to 1834 and in particular how many typical elements of the Gothic novel appear in Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein," including graveyards, murders, elaborate Continental settings and young innocent women who become victims. It looks at how "Frankenstein" took the Gothic novel to new heights, exploring and stretching the elements of mood and engaging the reader with exquisite descriptions. It examines how Shelley was able to create very precise moods among her readers as well as an element of suspense by creating elaborate descriptions of scenery and weather and by also using situations and emotions in opposition to each other.
