Hey, I'm also studying Frankenstein at the moment and the PEE method is a very good baseline to structure answers on. If you want, you could try these methods to getting more depth in essays:

- Try to refer to critical/contextual background informatioh in your essays. For example, talking briefly about a critic's perception or Shelley's background in relation to the point you're trying to make in the essay should get you marks.

- Instead of using one quote per point, see if you can link different quotes together under the same point. For example, if you're answering a question related to parallels between Victor and the Monster, then you could perhaps talk about how their language is identical in some parts of the novel (e.g. the 'gnashing of teeth' actions they both do).

- Also, perhaps relating to critical/contextual information, try talking briefly about different works of literature in relation to your point in the essay. For example, the Monster tells Victor that 'you purpose to kill me, how dare you sport thus with life?' This can be seen as a largely relevent connection to Adam in Paradise Lost, Book X, II.743-4: 'Did I request thee, Maker, from my clay to mould me man?' This example would be used generally when talking about whether the Monster is a villain or a victim.
