Among the most popular authors of those days I can name Bram Stoker, Ann Radcliffe, Horace Walpole. They are both aliens in this world and they won’t be treated as normal members of the society.But, to my mind, Mary Shelley and Ernest Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann are the best representatives of this genre. And if we return to Victor Frankenstein, the creator of the monster, he reminds me the whole Berlin’s public because for him the creation of an alive being was an experiment, probably, caused by his desire to replace the God but still it was nothing more.The circumstances may vary but the corner stone of the plot remains unchangeable: a character fights against supernatural forces in abnormal situations. Both of them are not generally accepted by people: Gluck creates music that other people do not appreciate and they avoid it and Frankenstein is a monster that only frightens people and is alone in this world as well as the musician Gluck.
The cause of such situation is evident, it was a very expensive thing to buy and read books but the changes in the society and the development of technologies gave people a chance to change their traditional way of life.
Frankenstein says: “I had worked hard for nearly two years, for the sole purpose of infusing life into an inanimate body. First of all, I think it is necessary to underline that the main characters feel guilty in terrible events that happened to their closest relatives.

So Victor Frankenstein realizes that he is responsible for the death of his younger brother and his bride Elisabeth while the principal character of “The Sand Man” blames himself in the death of his own father who died when he tried to save his son from the sand man as well as Victor understands that his creature killed his relatives because of him.
Almost two hundred years ago, world literature was swarming.
At this period of time the publishing business began to be profitable.
