    Hi! I moved this to the English forum - you're more likely to get an answer here you could also look at TSR's learning resources - here are the ones for the Gothic.

    I'm pretty sure you already know the main Gothic conventions in literature so I suggest you reread these texts and skim through them. I would suggest skimming through chapter summaries and then look at some chapters.

    I've only read Frankenstein. So, for Gothic conventions would be reason vs emotion. A really good excerpt would be when the Monster is hiding in the woods near the cottage, observing and learning about the world; it's history, language, culture, humanity, etc. He thinks that by learning all these things, the family living in the cottage would accept him. However, when he confronts the family, they lash out because of his hideous form and he kills all of them family members in the cottage.

    Said above, this is great for looking at elements of the Gothic in terms of the binary opposition of rational vs irrational, beast vs human, knowledge vs faith etc. There's loads of Gothic binary oppositions that you can look at from that part of the novel.

    I have no idea how or what you need to do for your exam, but I assume since it's three texts,y ou don't need to have a bank of quotes from each text. I suggest you focus on three conventions per text and get a few quotes if you're running out of time.
