Frankenstein

Frankenstein

by Mary Shelley

Frankenstein Chapter 8 Summary

  • Shocking! Justine confesses even though she is innocent so that she won't go to Hell, which … doesn't quite make sense to us, because isn't lying a sin, too?
  • Elizabeth and Victor still believe in her innocence, although no one else does. Again, except for Justine.
  • Justine is executed.
  • Victor at least has the good sense to feel guilty, since his secret has now caused two people he loves to die.
