Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: Just about any given cover will have this in full effect. The Bernie Wrightson edition of ''Frankenstein'' goes one step further; all depictions of Victor Frankenstein's work area throughout the book are so chock full of glassware that they can serve ''no'' practical purpose to Frankenstein whatsoever, and, indeed, seem to play no role in his work.

* UncannyValley: [[invoked]] An in-unverse example: Frankenstein explains that not only did he make the Creature out of dead body parts, he had to make him 8 feet tall to wire together all the smaller blood veins. The result is a monster that everyone is scared of at first glance, including the creature itself.

* CharacterFilibuster: By technicality. The story is supposed to be Frankenstein narrating his story to the captain of the ''Archangel'', the ship that rescued him from the ice. When the POV switches to the Creature, it's in the form of the Creature telling Frankenstein his tale, which Frankenstein repeats back in his own tale. The technical literary term for this is a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diegesis#In_literature hypodiegetic narrative]], making the Creature's monologue within Frankenstein's monologue within Walton's monologue a hypohypodiegetic narrative.

* NestedStory: At the deepest level: The family on whom the monster is spying is telling a story, within the monster's story to Frankenstein, who is in turn recounting the story to the Captain of the Arctic exploration vessel the''Archangel'', who is in turn telling someone else about it in a letter.
