In my work I will attempt to analyze the interweaving relations of monster, society and ethical taboos in English Gothic and neo-Gothic novel of the 19th century. Taking into account theories of Noel Carroll and Phillip J. Nickel about figure of a monster as a threat to current social and epistemological order, being a key element of horror aesthetic, I will try to discern complex relationship of monster, society and individual in the novels Frankenstein or the New Prometheus of Mary Shelley, and Dracula of Bram Stoker. First novel can be regarded as a late Gothic novel with overreaching Faustian scientist as its main character, while Dracula can be regarded as a classical example of Victorian neo-Gothic.
