What does genre mean?
What are the elements of gothic genre?
What is a play?
What are my thoughts so far about the setting, the characters, the plot of the play?
During a cold winter night, Captain Walton is on a ship. Captain Walton and the sailors couldn't go further North, because the ice had closed them in.
They heard two voices in the empty air. Captain Walton began to suspect that there were ghosts in the air.
The man on the sledge is huge and hideous, I think this is the monster. He is crying in revenge. There is a man on foot and he is crying in pain, I think this must be Frankenstein because he is suffering.
Frankenstein is a bit mysterious and excited. Clerval is his best friend and tries to make jokes. We are in a science laboratory.
Frankenstein and Clerval talk about Frankenstein's new invention.
There must be something strange going on because we see body parts in the room.
Elizabeth came to Frankenstein's room. Elizabeth is his cousin. His father is very ill.
Once the lightning strikes the monster is born.
The monster is enormously tall and powerfully built. His open eyes are hideous,red- rimmed, and glaring in a waxy yellow face. His lips are black, scars crisscross his cheeks, and his face is framed with matted black hair. He is naked to the waist. Ha wears nothing but simple trousers.
Act 1 ends with the monster running out of the room.
At first Frankenstein is happy to see his monster come alive but then he is scared and runs away.
