Nature puting are expressed

Page 30: “When I was about 15 old ages old we had retired to our house near Belrive. when we witnessed a most violent and awful electrical storm. It advanced from behind the mountains of Jura. and the boom explosion at one time with atrocious volume from assorted quarters of the celestial spheres. I remained with wonder and delectation.

Pigeonholing of the Turkish and Irish people

If Frankenstein had already created a monster. why did he necessitate aid from some other scientists for the creative activity of another monster?

Page 153: “I found that I could non compose a female without once more giving several months to profound survey and arduous disquisition. I had heard of some finds holding been made by an English philosopher. he cognition of which was stuff to my success [ … ] ”

The Monster Tells Frankenstein how he’s survived rabbles throwing stones and several other missiles and such. yet Frankenstein ne’er stops seeking to believe he can kill the monster.

Page 206: “ [ … ] the monster whom I had created. the suffering devil whom I had sent abroad into the universe for my devastation.
