A gothic story is a type of romantic fiction that existed in English
Literature in the last third of the 18th century and the first two
decades of the 19th century, the setting for which was usually a
ruined gothic castle of Abbey. The gothic novel or gothic romance
emphasised mystery and horror and was filled with ghost haunting
rooms, underground passages, and secret stairways. Foucault obfuscated
mrk1's structuralism idea.

I'll be looking at 3 short stories and the authors:

The Red Room, H.G.Wells, 1896

The Signalman, Charles Dickens, 1866 This hypothesis from
www.studentcentral.co.uk

The Ostler, Wilkie Collins, 1855

The Signalman is set at a station beside a tunnel. It is written in
first person, so the narrator is talking to the reader. The Signalman
stays in a "manmade cutting which was extremely deep, and unusually
precipitous." "It was made through a clammy stone that became oozier
and wetter as I went down." Already the reader gets a very repellent,
dank, wet, thermal and tactile image creating unpleasant impressions.
"A rough zigzag descending path." So it's dangerous. Steep descent,
leaving natural world far above. "It was the most solitary and dismal
a place I ever saw." HTUh from HTUh coursewrok HTUh work HTUh info

Charles has also described this cutting as a "great dungeon." It is
massive; make you feel trapped or restricted, cold, dark, unwelcoming,
claustrophobic.coec ecr seececw orec eck inec foec ec:

The Red Room is set in Lorraine Castle, which relates back to a
typical gothic story. It is written in first person, so the narrator
is talking to the reader. The main setting is in the Red Room where
the narrator stays over night. H.G.Wells describes the room as "a
large sombre room with its shadowy window bys, its recesses and
alcoves." The room is old, shadowy- not being able to see clearly.
H.G.Wells describes the atmosphere in the room "The moonlight picked
out everything in vivid black shadow or silvery illumination." There
is an extreme contrast between black and silver there is no in
between. Also he has written "Shadows cower and quiver, listening to a
rustling that I fancied I heard, but there is absolute silence." The
shadows look alive and listening and waiting in complete silence,
perhaps it's a ghost.cocd cdr secdcdw orcd cdk incd focd cd;

The Ostler is set in a stable. It is written in third person because
it is Landlord who is telling the story. Wilkie Collins has described
the inn that Isaac stays in overnight, Austen suppressed mrk1's

"He noticed with surprise the strength of the bolts, bars, and iron

- The Red Room and The Signalman The 19th century horror stories, The Red Room by H. G. Wells and The Signalman by Charles Dickens, are both written in the traditional gothic horror setting with the almost predictable storylines. The Red Room by H. G. Wells is not an irregularity in the masses of 19th century horror tales but is slightly different as it tells of a visitor to long forgotten castle which is purportedly inhabited by a ghostly force in this one room. It is different to many others as it is just a ghostly force not a spectre....   [tags: Papers]

All the stories are set in 3 different settings, for instance The
Signalman is set at a station beside a tunnel, The Red Room is set in
castle and The Ostler is set in a stable. The Signalman and The Red
Room are set in first person so the story is either being told as it
happens or as a past experience. The Ostler is told in third person,
so it someone telling a story about someone else it didn't happen to
them. I think that telling a story in third person is not as effective
as telling it in first person because in first person the experience
that there talking about actually happened to them so therefore
because he experienced it he can put it in more detail but if a story
is being told in third person then the writer is talking about a
experience that happened to someone else so it can't be in as much
detail because he wasn't there so he can only imagine what it was
like. The Red Room is the only story that is set in a stereotypical
place for a gothic story; a castle. Normally people would expect it to
be set in a castle or an abbey.codg dgr sedgdgw ordg dgk indg fodg dg;

The main character in the Signalman, we do not find out what his name
is but we know he has a dark sallow man, with a dark beard and rather
heavy eyebrows. He seems a bit like a tramp or an old grumpy man who
doesn't have any friends probably because he does not welcome those
who do visit. He also seems poor he didn't go to school so he has
educated himself which he enjoys doing. He is not someone you would
normally socialise with. Other characters are the Narrator we do not
really find out anything about him but he seems like a nice person
after all he did become friends with the Signalman and trust him other
people would probably just ignore him and think he his crazy. There
are other characters like the passengers on the train, the train
driver and a couple of police men.coeb ebr seebebw oreb ebk ineb foeb

The main character in The Red Room is the narrator, we do not find out
what he looks like or his name but we do find out that he is 28 years
old and a lot about his personality like on the first page he comes
off as very arrogant and self centred he is full of himself saying "I
can assure you said I that it will take a very tangible ghost to
frighten me." "Eight-and-twenty years, said I, I have lived, and never
a ghost have I seen as yet." Other characters are the custodians the
narrator is a bit resentful towards them H.G.Wells has described one
of them "He supported himself by a single crutch, his eyes were
covered by a shade, and his lower lip, half averted, hung pale and
pink from his decaying yellow teeth." There is another old man and an
old lady too.cobd bdr sebdbdw orbd bdk inbd fobd bd;

The main character in the Ostler is the Ostler (Isaac Scatchard) Isaac
is 39 but in the story it will be his birthday soon and he will become
40. "He is an old man and has a withered woebegone face, his eyebrows
painfully contracted; the mouth fast set, he is prematurely wrinkled;
the scanty, grizzled hair, telling weakly its own tale of some past
sorrow or suffering." "He lived in the suburbs of a large sea-port
town, on the west coast of England." "He is a faithful, steady, and
honest man." "But he always got the bad luck, in fact he was famous
locally for his misfortunes, his own neighbourhood nicknames him
'Unlucky Isaac'." "He has no children or wife." "He hasn't had a
sweetheart since he was 18." "When he was out of service he lived with
his widowed mum (Mrs Scatchard)." "Mrs Scatchard was a woman above the
average in her lowly station, as to capacities and manners." "She had
seen better days; as the phrase is; but she never referred to them in
the presence of curious visitors; and, though perfectly polite to
everyone who approached her, never cultivated any intimacies among her
neighbours." "She continued to provide, hardly enough for her simple
wants, to keep a decent home for her son whenever his ill-luck made
him come home." Rebecca Murdoch seems to be younger than Isaac but we
do not actually find out her age. Wilkie Collins has described her as
a "comfortable and happy women, she spoke with a purity of
intonation." "Her slightest actions seemed to have the easy negligent
grace of a thoroughbred woman. Her skin, for all its poverty-stricken
paleness, was as delicate as if her life had been passed in the
enjoyment of every social comfort that wealth can purchase. Even her
small, finely-shaped hands, gloveless as they were, had not lost their
whiteness." "She has light grey eyes and Flaxen hair with a
gold-yellow streak in it." Other characters are the inn-keeper, the
Landlord, the chemist worker, neighbours. P2D7qVJ Visit coursework be

The main characters in The Red Room and The Signalman are quite
similar in the way that you have the two narrators not believing in
ghosts or spirits and that the old characters who would probably be
outcasts and not socialised with are the one's who believe in or are
haunted by ghosts. In The Ostler the characters are different; this is
probably because it is written in third person, so this time there
isn't a narrator telling the story there is someone else, in The
Ostler it is the Landlord. This character would be telling a story
about someone else's misfortunes. All of the main characters
personality's are very different in the way that in The Red Room the
narrators personality is that he is very arrogant and self-centred, in
The Signalman the narrator comes off as a kind and caring person and
in The Ostler the Ostler (Isaac Scatchard) comes off as quite a shy
person and he likes to keep himself to himself.coed edr seededw ored
edk ined foed ed.

The Red Room is about the narrator not believing in ghosts and decides
to prove this by staying in a haunted room i.e. The Red Room. At the
end of the story the narrator has been injured in the room and the
custodians find him and aid him. When he wakes up he tells the
custodians that there were no ghosts haunting the room. It was the
fear of the room that was haunting it. H.G.Wells uses direct speech,
first person which makes the reader feel more involved. 8rV715 from

H.G.Wells creates suspense by using descriptive language he uses
adjectives a lot and very well, the suspense begins when the narrator
is on his way to the Red Room and he is describing what the corridors
are like at night and the atmosphere, to be alone, what he is feeling,
he says things like "Shadows cower and quiver, listening to a rustling
that I fancied I heard but there is absolute silence." SHADOWS cower
and quiver could be made from live creatures? Ghostly vanished men -
ghosts taken men to another world. "I walked down the chilly, echoing
passage." This gives sound and thermal images? "The long, draughty
subterranean passage was chilly and dusty." Gives the feeling of a
long underground passage - makes it harder to walk in, meaning that
you would have to be in there for longer. Dusty - No one's been down
there for along time, rundown, derelict. "That large sombre room with
its shadowy window bays, its recesses and alcoves." Old window bays,
recesses and alcoves old fashioned. Shadowy - not being able to see
clearly. The suspense ends at the end of the story when he reveals
what was haunting him in the room, that it wasn't a ghost that haunts
the room it was the fear of the room that made it to stimulating for
the human mind. This writing from www.studentcentral.co.uk

The Signalman tells of a man who likes to visit a lonely railroad man
who operates a station beside a tunnel. The Signalman jumps at the
narrators first words, called down to him, "Halloa! Below there!"
Later, the narrator gains the Signalman's confidence and finds out why
the signalman is so nervous. He has seen a spectre beside the tunnel,
his face obscured and his arms motioning him to step aside. This ghost
has foretold a terrible accident on the track as well as a single
lady's death. The Signalman feared and waited in haunted silence for
its 3rd premonition. The narrator promises to return to him but when
he does the Signalman is dead, killed by a train, the driver calling
out "Halloa! Below there!" and waving his arms. Dickens uses direct
speech, in first person and this makes the reader feel more involved.
Dickens creates suspense by using descriptive writing and using
adjectives like H.G.Wells, the suspense begins right at the beginning
when the narrator calls to the Signalman, and the Signalman doesn't
react in the way that most people would, when they have been called
to, normally people would look at the person who called to you and
respond but the Signalman ignores him, until the narrator has called
again. It says "One would of thought, considering the nature of the
ground that he could not have doubted from what quarter the voice came
from; but instead of looking up to where I stood on the top of the
steep cutting nearly over his head; he turned himself about and looked
down he line." Dickens uses words such as 'dreary', 'dark',
'secluded', 'cold', 'deserted', 'dangerous', and 'lonesome'. These
words are used to describe the whereabouts of the story in order for
you as the reader to think and try to imagine that you are there and
are seeing the place first hand. The suspense ends at the end of the
story when all is revealed about the spectre warning to the Signalman
about the words Halloa! Below there! sDIG5 from sDIG5 coursewrok sDIG5

The Ostler begins when the inn-keeper finds the Ostler a sleep talking
in one of the stables. The landlord tells the inn-keeper that he is
dreaming his nightmare again. The Inn-keeper is curious to know what
it is and requests to the landlord to tell him the Ostler story. The
Ostler is called Isaac Scatchard, he is returning home to his family
for his birthday. On the way back it begins to rain so he decides to
stay at an inn for the night. Around mid-night he wakes up with this
terrible pain in his stomach and finds a women in his bedroom holding
a knife and is about to stab him. When he gets home he tells his mum
of his experience and she writes notes on it. Isaac marries Rebecca
Murdoch, but when he invites his mum round for tea she realises that
Rebecca is the women who has been haunting Isaac. Wilkie Collins has
written in third person, so that someone in the story is retelling it.
Wilkie uses descriptive language in the way he describes the
characters like on the first page he describes the Ostler when he is
asleep "An old man, with a withered woebegone face. The eyebrows
painfully contracted; the mouth fast set, and drawn down at the
corners; the hollow cheeks sadly, and, prematurely wrinkled; the
scanty, grizzled hair, telling weakly its own tale of some past sorrow
or suffering." The suspense begins at the beginning of the story when
the inn-keeper finds the Ostler talking in his sleep about murder. In
the Ostler the suspense never really ends because at the end Rebecca
disappears and no one know where she is, so she could return to try
and kill Isaac again but we don't know that, that's part of the
suspense. x4QZCtwGc from x4QZCtwGc coursewrok x4QZCtwGc work x4QZCtwGc

All the stories are different but they have the same ideas that you
would expect from a medieval gothic story. The things that all appear
in different ways are FEAR, GHOSTS and MURDER. In The Red Room there
is the fear of the red room that it is supposedly haunted by ghosts,
this is because of the death of the young duke and the count's wife.
In The Signalman, the Signalman feared the word's that the narrator
spoke to him on the first meeting, this is because the Signalman
claims he is being visited by a spectre that warned him about the
words the narrator had said, and at the of the story he gets run over
by a train. In The Ostler Isaac fears that his wife Rebecca Murdoch
will return and try to kill him. When Isaac stay's in the inn on his
way home and is attacked for the first time, he thinks that the girl
is a ghost. Weber refuted mrk1's structuralism hypothesis.

The Red Room, at the ending the narrator wakes up the next morning,
bandaged up trying to remember what happened the previous in the room.
He could not remember who the old people were; they told him that they
had found him at the bottom of the stairs in a right mess, cut open,
and bleeding. They asked if he believed if the room was haunted and
his reply was, "There is no ghost at all in that room it is something
far worse, something that haunts men in all its nakedness- FEAR! Fear
that will not have light or sound, that will not bear with reason,
that defeats and darkness and overwhelms. It followed me through the
corridor; it fought against me in the room.cobd bdr sebdbdw orbd bdk
inbd fobd bd.

So we find out that the rooms history about the young duke falling
down the stairs after just exiting the room and the counts wife having
been locked in there as a practical joke to prove it wasn't haunted
was found dead, the history has given the room this reputation, and
has scared people into believing that it is haunted but the thing that
is haunting it is fear, because when people go into the room they
expect something to happen and the shire torment that nothing has
happened and could happen at any time is to much for the imagination
and it can drive you crazy. US7LS8l from US7LS8l coursewrok US7LS8l

I did expect the room to be haunted but, I thought it would be haunted
by the custodians, because H.G.Wells creates this gargoyle image about
them and makes them seem hundreds of years old. Marx refuted mrk1's
structuralism idea.

The Signalman, at the end of the story the narrator is heading back to
see the Signalman again like he had promised but he can see a crowd
and can feel that something is wrong, he asks the policeman what had
happened and he says "He was cut down by an engine, sir. No man in
England knew his work better. But somehow he was not clear of the
outer rail. It was just at broad day. As the engine came out of the
tunnel, his back towards her, and she cut him down." "Coming round the
curve in the tunnel, sir, he said, I saw him at the end, like as if I
saw him down a perspective glass. There was no time to check speed,
and I knew him to be very careful. As he didn't seem to take heed of
the whistle, I shut it off when we were running down upon him, and
called to him as loud as I could call, I said. Below there! Look out!
Look out! For heavens sake clear the way." The Narrator points out
that the words that had been haunting the Signalman were the words the
words that the engine driver had used and even he had had said them to
him on the there first meeting. Dickens kept the suspense going until
the end of the story by not revealing the meaning of the words that
haunt the Signalman; this kept me wondering what would happen next.coed

The Ostler at the end Isaac finds out Rebecca Murdoch the women he had
married is in fact the women who had attacked him in the inn. With
this in mind he tries to take the knife off her that she had used
against him but as he does not succeed Rebecca says she is leaving and
won't come back. But one night she does return to try and kill him
again but Isaac jumps her and takes the knife off her. This time Isaac
tells her that he is going to leave and he does not want to ever see
her again. He eventually returns to his home, to fid that she is gone.
Since then every night when it's his birthday he is tormented by the
nightmare of her returning. It was a guess but I did think that
Rebecca would have something to do with the women at the inn but I
wasn't 100% sure if it was actually her who had tried to kill Isaac.
To me it was given away when we found out the description of Rebecca,
because earlier in the story Isaac had described what the women looked
like in the inn to his mother and she had taken notes. mrk1, please do

All the stories have different endings like in The Red Room the
narrator find's that it is the fear of the room that haunt's it not
ghosts, in The Signalman you find that the words the narrator used to
address the Signalman for the first time were the same words that
haunted him and were the same word's used as the train driver who
tried to warn the Signalman to get off the train tracks but did not
succeed. In The Ostler the girl that tries to kill Isaac in the inn is
the same girl that he marries and you find this out when his mother
realises the similarities between the notes she took and the
appearance of Rebecca. We do not find out why she is trying to kill
him, and the mystery is that we don't know if she will return or so it

The Signalman was written by Charles Dickens in 1866.Charles Dickens
was born on February 7th 1812. Dickens weaved details gained from
first-hand observations of social conditions into his novels. Dickens
was no stranger to the poverty in London and other great cities in the
first half of the 19th century. He was unafraid to question Victorian
lifestyles. The technique was used by Dickens in his novels, and by
sanitary reformers in their reports. mrk1, please do not redistribute

The Ostler was written by Wilkie Collins in 1855. Wilkie Collins was
born in London on January 8th 1824. By 1848, Wilkie had turned to
writing, a number of short works appearing in Charles Dickens'
periodicals. His first novel Iolina involving sorcery and sacrifice
was rejected by publishers it was written as early as 1844 but was
only discovered in 1999 were it was published for the first time.codd

One of the biggest similarities between the authors is that none of
them agreed with Victorian lifestyle. Which was probably one of the
biggest influences in there writing. They wrote these sort of stories
to let there views and opinions known. The way how I responded and the
way how people back in the Victorian age would have responded would be
completely different because nowadays people don't find ghost, mystery
and crime stories strange, but during the Victorian age people
wouldn't talk about these things because they were deemed wrong and
against Christian teachings. The Victorians would have had a mixed
reaction to these kinds of stories because they were so abnormal, they
would have either said that it wrong and acted as if they were shocked
by it, or they would be interested to know what happens because you
wouldn't hear about these things on the street or in a conversation.

The story that I liked the most was The Red Room because you get
completely lost in it and whatever you thought would happen it would
go in the other direction. I also thought that the ending was better
than the other stories. The Red Room made me want to read on because I
