Copy the following text which gives a definition of ‘Gothic fiction’. Underline the key elements of a Gothic story.


Prominent features of Gothic fiction include terror (both psychological and physical), mystery, the supernatural, ghosts, haunted houses, castles, darkness, death, decay, doubles, madness, secrets and hereditary curses. The typical characters of Gothic fiction include tyrants, villains, bandits, maniacs, persecuted maidens, femmes fatales, madwomen, magicians, vampires, werewolves, monsters, demons, revenants, ghosts, perambulating skeletons and the Devil himself.

The term “Gothic” was used precisely because the genre dealt with emotional extremes and dark themes, and was often set in the buildings of this style (castles, mansions, and monasteries, often isolated, crumbling, and ruined).
