Emily Bronte stays true to this tradition in a sense by starting Wuthering Heights with a framing sequence where Mr Lockwood is forced to take a holiday for the good of his health, and whilst he's there he learns the history of the inhabitants of the neighbouring Wuthering Heights. Besides being a capable and ambitious sovereign, Otto I was an ardent friend of the Roman Catholic church, as revealed by his appointment of clerics to high office, by his missionary activities east of the Elbe River, and finally by his military campaigns, at the behest of Pope John XII, against Berengar II, king of Italy.

The warning of Blind Alice, the wishing well, and the three witches in the kirkyard (obviously borrowed from Macbeth) all contribute to the Gothic background which dominates the action, fatalism conditioning the actions of the principal characters as the curse that foretells tragedy for the brooding hero and the innocent heroine works itself out relentlessly. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World. The 1960s Gothic television series Dark Shadows borrowed liberally from the Gothic tradition and featured elements such as haunted mansions, vampires, witches, doomed romances, werewolves, obsession, and madness.

So I am able to say that Twilight has achieved the ultimate aim of the Gothic novel. Amazing tapestries can also be used in pillows, curtains, and upholstery. Freud explains this guilt as a repressed component of hostility toward the dead In Freud's "Case of Paranoia Running Counter to the Psychoanalytical Theory of the Disease," he describes a 30-something woman living with her mother who forms a paranoiac delusion to defend herself against the attentions of man.

She was completely unable to communicate what she knew – and she was not even sure how much she had actually seen and how much she had imagined. I am a sucker for lonely, windswept landscapes, remote, mysterious mansions, smart, stubborn heroines, handsome, brooding heroes, family secrets, things that go bump in the night, ghosts… all the hallmarks of a good, Gothic tale.

For these reasons it seems unlikely that an alleged abortion shared with Finley could have had a direct influence on the writing of the novel. We were slaves for centuries, beaten and stripped of our identity, a Gypsy woman wears a veil to tell the world, she a proud and free woman, slave to no man no more, free to wear the bold colours of the flowers, free to run like the wild horses we are.
