HideShow resource information

What may not be expected in a country of eternal light

-Walton

 

In a scientific pursuit there is continual food for discovery and wonder

 

 

 

So much has been done, explain the soul of Frankenstein- more, far more, I will achieve: treading in the steps already marked

-Frankenstein

 

 

Unearth the ugliness rendered it almost too horrible for human eyes

 

 

Gigantic structure

 

The angel of destruction which asserted its omnipotent sway over me

Shrivelled complexion and black lips

 

Tortured the living animal to animate the lifeless clay

 

 

The fallen angel becomes the malignant devil

 

 

A most violent thunder storm

 

Wretched mockery of justice

 

Stretched on the grass, livid, emotionless, the print of the murders fingers was on his neck

 

Justine and indeed every human being way guiltless of this murder

 

Thirst for knowledge

 

Longing to penetrate the secrets of nature

 

Life and death appeared to ideal bounds which I should at first burst through

 

I shall kill no albatross

-        Frankenstein

What glory would attend the discovery if I could banish disease from the human frame and render man invulnerable to any but violent death

-        Frankenstein

 

You are my creator, but I am your master- obey!

-Frankenstein

 

 

I shall be with you on your wedding night

-Frankenstein

 

Lifeless and inanimate, thrown across the bed, her head hanging down and her pale distorted features covered by her hair

Vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind

Deadly weight hanging around my neck and bowing me to the ground

A blot upon the earth, from all men fled and all men disowned

-        Frankenstein
