Example text

In the first entry, dated August 5th, Walton tells his sister that the ice has sur- Page 15 rounded the ship, and he is aware of the severity of the situation. " About two hours later, the imprisoning ice cracked, and Walton's ship was freed. The next morning, Walton encounters a man who, we learn, has been stranded with his sledge on an ice floe. Before he is taken aboard, though, the stranger asks where Walton's ship is bound, an inquiry which astonishes Walton because the man seems to be nearly frozen, starving, and terribly emaciated.

As he works, he begins to ponder the consequences of his work, and he changes his mind. He decides that if he creates yet another creature, this one might be even more evil, and, together, the two monsters might begin a race of monsters of untold proportion. He therefore destroys his work, and at the moment of destruction, the creature appears and curses Frankenstein and threatens vengeance, saying that on Frankenstein's wedding night, he will be there to torment him. Soon afterward, Frankenstein discovers the body of his closest friend, Henry Clerval; Clerval has been strangled.

During one of these visits, in Milan, Italy, his mother found a peasant and his wife taking care of ''five hungry babies"; among them, there was a child whom Mrs. Frankenstein found very attractive. This child, says Victor Frankenstein, "was thin and very fair. " The girl was a foundling, as it turned out, but was descended from nobility. Victor's parents immediately decided to adopt the child, Elizabeth Lavenza, and, accordingly, Elizabeth became, in Victor's words, his "more than sister,'' a child cherished and beloved by all who knew her.
