Story Summary: The story begins with the scene of a young woman in her kitchen, wondering where her father is. This is further reinforced by Beauty being surrounded by snow; implying innocence and purity via pathetic fallacy. The audience soon find out, however, this does not represent her character. The fact that throughout this phase of the book, lion imagery is consistent acts possibly to create a sense of dramatic irony when the identity of his host is reveiled.

As he leaves, the man tries to steal a rose for Beauty, as this is, "all she wanted. Beauty is upset at this, but does so because it will help her father, and she "loves him dearly". The development in their relationship is shown when he, "flung himself at her and buried his head in her lap [ She scribbles a note to her father, and leaves.

The note that Beauty, "scribbles" is a key point in the story, as it shows her ability to leave someone she, "loves dearly" without a second thought. The use of the word, "scribbles", also implies a lack of care, making it sound almost child like. To conclude, the story ends in the present tense the rest has been the past tense and in the third person; perhaps meant to be the role of the onlooking reader, as "Mr and Mrs Lyon walk in the garden; the old spaniel drowses on the grass, in a drift of fallen petals.

Gothic elements: Setting in a castle: The Courtship of Mr Lyon is set in a castle, which not only links to Previous granduer but also Alien landscapes, which are both other elements of the gothic genre.

Supernatural events: The major supernatural aspect of the story is as it ends, with the Beast magically transforming from an animal into a man. Entrapment and isolation: Again, although there is evidence of isolation, it is not isolation of the female character, but of the male character - the Beast.

The Beast also displays entrapment and isolation through him being trapped in his animal form, and so is being forced to be isolated from society. At the beginning of the story, her father says that all she has ever asked for is, "one white rose", whereas as we near the end of the story, Beauty, "was learning, at the end of her adolescence, how to be a spoiled child". Due to this, she could perhaps be seen to have been the innocence corrupted in the story, but corrupted by money and the life her father can give her in London.

Beast: The Beast represents the opposite of what a reader may expect him to; with Carter appearing to try and make him appear gentle and loving. These are all the typical traits shown by females within the genre, and supports the idea of this story being based on a dichotomy between these two characters.
