What are some examples of Gothic elements in Frankenstein?

Answer

Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a horror novel written by Mary Shelley, though it was first published anonymously in 1818. In his pursuit for knowledge, a scientist creates a creature from various recycled body parts, but is unable to control him, leading to disastrous results. While many people incorrectly refer to the monster as Frankenstein, this is actually the surname of the doctor who created it. Frankenstein is a classic example of the Gothic novel, which is a literary genre that incorporates both romantic and grotesque elements.
