Summary
"Frame narratives--stories within stories--are featured in nearly every canonical Gothic novel. The juxtaposition between the everyday "frame world" of the story and the disturbing embedded narrative allows the monstrous to escape textual confines, forcing the reader to experience the reassurance of the ordinary alongside the horror of the uncanny"--
