Frankenstein: Chapter 10

English Literature



13m 46s
We examine the Sublime spectacle of Montanvert where Nature influences Victor in several ways. Capable of cheering him, but also instilling guilt and regret. It aligns Victor further with the Romantics and questions of Sublime. We look at the arrival of the Monster who begins as a physical spectacle, but quickly becomes an emotional and verbal figure, unlike what has been portrayed so far by Victor. We see how the Monster takes control of its own narrative and fights against Victor’s bias to narrow the gap between him and humanity. Finally how the Monster invokes ‘Paradise Lost’, the first of many literary books that have shaped him.
