“Such were the professor’s words—rather let me say such the words of fate—enounced to destroy me.”

& Writing Resources, 2020

“I was like the Arabian who had been buried with the dead and found a passage to

life, aided only by one glimmering and seemingly ineffectual light.”

“The tortures of the accused did not equal mine; she was sustained by innocence, but

the fangs of remorse tore at my bosom, and would not forego their hold.”

“What may not be expected in a country of eternal light?”

“We called each other familiarly by the name of cousin. No word, no expression

could body forth the kind of relation in which she stood to me—my more than sister,

since till death she was to be mine only.”

“I had admired the perfect forms of my cottagers—their grace, beauty, and delicate

complexions; but how was I terrified when I viewed myself in a transparent pool! At first I started back…I was filled with the bitterest sensations of despondence and mortification. Alas! I did not yet entirely know the fatal effects of this miserable deformity.”

Frankenstein: Plot Structure Activity (Part 2)

“I had resolved in my own mind that that to create another like the fiend I had first

made would be an act of the basest and most atrocious selfishness.”

©AP Lit & More: Literature

& Writing Resources, 2020

“God, in pity, made man beautiful and alluring, after his own image; but my form is a filthy type of yours, more horrid even from the very resemblance. Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary

and abhorred.

“But I am a blasted tree; the bold has entered my soul; and I felt that I should survive to

exhibit what I shall soon cease to be—a miserable spectacle of wrecked humanity, pitiable to others and intolerable to myself.”

“But, as if possessed of magic powers, the monster had blinded me to his real intentions;

and when I thought I had prepared only my death, I hastened that of a far dearer victim.”

“Seek happiness in tranquility and avoid ambition, even if it be only the apparently

innocent one of distinguishing yourself in science and discoveries.”

“This was then the reward of my benevolence! I had saved a human being from destruction, and as a recompense I now writhed under the miserable pain of a wound which shattered the flesh and bone. The feelings of kindness and gentleness which I had entertained but a few moments before gave place to hellish rage and gnashing of teeth. Inflamed by pain, I vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind.”
