Hello. This is a forum set up for all those doing Elements of the Gothic. Feel free to discuss any of the texts, though just so you know, I am doing Frankenstein, The Bloody Chamber and Dr Faustus, so if you have any questions about these texts, I will do my best to answer

Although I didn't study Dracula as part of the course, I did write my wider reading coursework on it (specifically looking at how a feminist might view the way in which women were portrayed)

Desperately need help! Just CANNOT get this grade to go past a high C, and it's doing my head in.

Studying Macbeth, Frankenstein ( ) and The Bloody Chamber. Exam technique is the woe, here.

Well i always structure my essays as Introduction, Argument For, Argument Against and then Conclusion. Any particular things I can help with on Frankenstein and/or The Bloody Chamber (maybe even Macbeth, as I did that at GCSE)? Also, try and remember some quotations, try to point out anything to do with how the language helps tell the story and think about context (what social ideas influenced the text and how the text was received at the time in which it was written)

The quotations I'm pretty stellar with, particularly in regards to The Bloody Chamber and Macbeth. Frankenstein is taking a bit longer, which I put down to my utter hatred of the book. But yes, it's all the other parts I'm struggling with.
I mean, language, symbolism and metaphor is great. But the structure of the text - particularly in Frankenstein is where I seem to be slipping up. I assume referring to Macbeth and structure, you'd talk about staging?

Possibly. I have to say I don't feel I'm very good at the language side of things. Do you need help with themes, context, gothic concepts etc.?
