Chapter 3 I will pioneer a new way, explore unknown powers, and unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of creation. Just before Victor departs, his mother catches scarlet fever from Elizabeth, whom she has been nursing back to health, and dies. On her deathbed, she begs Elizabeth and Victor to marry.
Several weeks later, still grieving, Victor goes off to Ingolstadt. Arriving at the university, he finds quarters in the town and sets up a meeting with a professor of natural philosophy, M.
Krempe tells Victor that all the time that Victor has spent studying the alchemists has been wasted, further souring Victor on the study of natural philosophy. He then attends a lecture in chemistry by a professor named Waldman.
This lecture, along with a subsequent meeting with the professor, convinces Victor to pursue his studies in the sciences. Chapter 4 Victor attacks his studies with enthusiasm and, ignoring his social life and his family far away in Geneva, makes rapid progress.
Fascinated by the mystery of the creation of life, he begins to study how the human body is built anatomy and how it falls apart death and decay. After several years of tireless work, he masters all that his professors have to teach him, and he goes one step further: Privately, hidden away in his apartment where no one can see him work, he decides to begin the construction of an animate creature, envisioning the creation of a new race of wonderful beings.
Chapter 5 One stormy night, after months of labor, Victor completes his creation.
But when he brings it to life, its awful appearance horrifies him. He wakes to discover the monster looming over his bed with a grotesque smile and rushes out of the house.
He spends the night pacing in his courtyard. The next morning, he goes walking in the town of Ingolstadt, frantically avoiding a return to his now-haunted apartment. As he walks by the town inn, Victor comes across his friend Henry Clerval, who has just arrived to begin studying at the university.
Delighted to see Henry—a breath of fresh air and a reminder of his family after so many months of isolation and ill health—he brings him back to his apartment.
Victor enters first and is relieved to find no sign of the monster. But, weakened by months of work and shock at the horrific being he has created, he immediately falls ill with a nervous fever that lasts several months. Henry nurses him back to health and, when Victor has recovered, gives him a letter from Elizabeth that had arrived during his illness.Shelley's suspenseful and intellectually rich gothic tale confronts some of the most important and enduring themes in all of literature--the power of human imagination, the potential hubris of science, the gulf between appearance and essence, the effects of human cruelty, the desire for revenge and the need for forgiveness, and much more.

How does Frankincense feel? When Frankincense first created the Monster he was glad and almost overwhelmed that he has managed to create such a wonderful discovery. But when he realizes what it looks like he feels a completely different way.
At first I think Frankincense feels in ore and proud because he says 'l had selected features as beautiful'. Frankenstein's monster, often erroneously referred to as "Frankenstein", is a fictional character who first appeared in Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern attheheels.comy's title thus compares the monster's creator, Victor Frankenstein, to the mythological character Prometheus, who fashioned humans out of clay and gave them fire.
