Frankenstein quotes

HideShow resource information

What may not be expected in a country of eternal light



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




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

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
