Frankenstein Chapter 23 Summary
The newlyweds go for a walk around at their cottage. Only Victor has more than wedding night jitters. He is just oozing fear about the monster’s arrival.
Inside the cottage, he sends Elizabeth to bed so he can search the house for the monster. This is not how a wedding night is supposed to go down.
Big mistake. He hears Elizabeth scream. It suddenly hits Victor what we’ve all know for chapters now: the monster didn’t want to kill him. He wanted, and got, Elizabeth.
The body count has now reached four.
Poor Victor really hates himself at this point. He goes home to Geneva to tell his father the sad news, and the man drops dead from grief.
The body count has now reached five.
Victor is alone and miserable. Just like the monster he created.
He goes to a magistrate to try and tell him about the monster and Elizabeth’s death, but the magistrate doesn’t believe him.
Since Victor has nothing left to live for, he decides to spend the rest of his life hunting down the monster and attempting to kill him.
