With all that Hegel and similar  stuff doing the rounds, at a baser level, the two tone Gothic times must have been ripe for exploring the darker side during  the Gothic revival. On one side of it there was the looking back to the glories of the middle ages and then another of exploring  darker fears, horrors and also the  possibilities of scientific discovery. All good stuff for the creative mind to explore - and still is a useful and easy standby  muse and mode for some. I don't think Snoopy in Peanuts ever got beyond , 'It was a dark and stormy night........'  
This subject may well be linked to the German philosophy thread but those waters are too deep for me to  venture into again. So let's have some opinion on 19th Century Gothic stuff..... or later, if that's what shivers yer timbers.

Hmmm, Frankenstein, a Gothic novel or Science Fiction or a bit of both?
