-Robert Walton and is crew were searching the pacific ocean and finds a frozen man that is almost dead, called Frankenstein. he was very curious about life and how things worked “It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn; and whether it was the outward substance of things or the inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man that occupied me, still my inquiries were directed to the metaphysical, or in its highest sense, the physical secrets of the world.”

-Victor leaves to Geneva to go to university in Ingolstadt. ” the Angel of Destruction, which asserted omnipotent sway over me from the moment I turned my reluctant steps from my father’s door—led me first to M. Krempe, professor of natural philosophy.”

-Victor gains more and more curious about life and decides to try and create a human from dead body parts he collects from the graveyard. “Darkness had no effect upon my fancy, and a churchyard was to me merely the receptacle of bodies deprived of life”

-Victor creates a living “creature”. ” It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs.

-Victor has a breakdown from what he has created and is horrified. “‘My dear Victor,’ cried he, ‘what, for God’s sake, is the matter? Do not laugh in that manner. How ill you are! What is the cause of all this?’”

-Elizabeth gets worried about how sick Frankenstein is “My dearest Cousin, You have been ill, very ill, and even the constant letters of dear kind Henry are not sufficient to reassure me on your account. You are forbidden to write”

-William was killed and everyone except Frankenstein believes that Elizabeth, his own mother did it. She was found with a picture in her pocket but Frankenstein knows that his “creature” did it and not her. “‘Rise, my poor girl,’ said Elizabeth; ‘why do you kneel, if you are innocent? I am not one of your enemies, I believed you guiltless, notwithstanding every evidence, until I heard that you had yourself declared your guilt.”
