This worksheet can be used with any Gothic style story or novel. It is flexible and will increase your student's understanding of the elements in a Gothic novel and how to identify them.
The elements reviewed in this worksheet are the setting, mood, metonymy, ancient prophecy, omens/portents/visions, intense emotional reactions, unbelievable events, and Romantic elements.
Students are also asked to identify 15 vocabulary words they are unfamiliar with, define them, and then write a synonym they can connect to the unfamiliar word.
Use this worksheet a couple of different times with different stories so students can easily compare and contrast the different author's use and contribution of the Gothic genre.
