Frankenstein Chapter 5 Quotes
How we cite the quotes:
I stepped fearfully in: the apartment was empty, and my bedroom was also freed from its hideous guest. I could hardly believe that so great a good fortune could have befallen me, but when I became assured that my enemy had indeed fled, I clapped my hands for joy and ran down to Clerval. (5.12)
Victor assumes that because his creature is hideous, he must be an enemy.
