His father, observing his misery, becomes ill as well. But when the eyes of his creature open, he is terrified by its appearance, and runs from it in horror. Or why the breasts, that I should nurse? His passion for learning leads him to Paracelsus and Albertus Magnus, two other scientists from earlier days, and invigorates Victor into a serious study of science and its possible applications. Religion addresses the source, purpose, and meaning of it all. Still in grief, Victor says goodbye to Clerval, Elizabeth, and his father and leaves to study at Ingolstadt, a university in Germany.
But scientifically speaking, a theory is a synthesis of facts and welltested hypotheses. GradeSaver, 12 June 2015 Web. When William mentions that his father is Alphonse Frankenstein, the monster erupts in a rage of vengeance and strangles the boy to death with his bare hands. Frankenstein sets out in the middle of the night in a small boat ; after being carried away from the shore, he is relieved to reach land, but is immediately accused of murder. Frankenstein, in his hypocrisy, longs to murder a being that owes its life to him. Victor is under pressure and therefore more likely to submit to the monsters demands, highlighting the possibility of Victor going back on his word.
Two more sons, and Ernest, are born into the family. Who, Shelley insistently asks, is the true monster? The monster was full of sorrow, and cursed his creator and his own hideousness. Though he is surrounded by examples of human happiness, he finds himself excluded, through no fault of his own, irrevocably excluded from such bliss. At Ingolstadt, Victor's passion for science increases exponentially. Victor takes a small rowboat out into the center of a vast Scottish lake; there, he throws the new woman's tattered remains overboard.
In Strasburgh he meets Clerval, and the two travel across the Continent to London and thence to Edinburgh. The creature emits a tortured scream. The monster nervously enters the cottage and begins to speak to the old man. Victor delights in the sciences and vows to someday study science. Physics is the study of such concepts as motion, force, energy, matter, heat, sound, light, and the components of atoms. The quality in Victor that proves to be his fatal flaw is his never ending pursuit to learn more which causes him to go to strayed paths to earn knowledge. Although he looks forward to the wedding, Frankenstein is unwilling to marry until he has created the Creature's mate, he delays the event until he has finished a tour of Europe.
He provides for his wife in grand style. This brings on a fever of delirium that lasts for months. Finally, he is no longer able to struggle against his illness, and dies peacefully in his sleep. Born into a wealthy Swiss family, Victor enjoyed an idyllic, peaceful childhood. There is also an echo of the views of Mary Shelley's father, William Godwin, as expressed in his book Political Justice see. Their parents encourage the children to be close in every imaginable way Â as cousins, as brother and sister, and, in the future, as husband and wife.
Victor's hatred of the creature reaches pathological proportions, and takes on the character of an obsession; he thinks of nothing but his eventual revenge. I am alone and miserable; man will not associate with me; but one as deformed and horrible as myself would not deny herself to me. At that moment, he realizes that the monster is his brother's murderer. He develops a consuming interest in the life principle that is, the force which imparts life to a human being. They an old man, a young man, and a young woman enthrall him with the sound of their music and the cadence of their language, which he adores but cannot understand. General Cereals is using a regression model to estimate the demand for Tweetie Sweeties, a whistle-shaped, sugar-coated breakfast cereal for children. Meanwhile, in Geneva, life goes on.
After observing the family for a year, he resolves to approach the blind De Lacey when he is alone. Frankenstein's parents are loving and joyful with the birth of their child.

At the moment of his death, the creature appears: he mourns all that he has done, but maintains that he could not have done otherwise, given the magnitude of his suffering. His mind is not eased but spurred on by his lust for all knowledge and learning.
He relates to Walton his travels across the frozen north, which take him at last to the ship where he is recovered. Once the mysterious traveler has somewhat recovered from his weakness, Robert Walton begins to talk to him. He believes that the senior De Lacey, unprejudiced against his hideous exterior, may be able to convince others of his gentle nature. He supplements his linguistic knowledge with the ability to read after discovering copies of Paradise Lost, Plutarch's Lives, and Goethe's Sorrows of Young Werther. All of the people that the creature encounters in his travels regard him with horror: he is often pelted with stones and beaten with sticks, though he attempts to make overtures of friendship. He's just about on his deathbed from starvation, exhaustion, and illness. Like an infant, he is plagued by blurry vision, confusion of the senses, and an aversion to direct light: he experiences the world precisely as a young child would experience it.
