Frankenstein

Frankenstein

by Mary Shelley

Frankenstein Chapter 9 Summary

  • Victor continues to feel (1) stupid and (2) guilty. He mopes around, contemplating suicide.
  • His father takes the family to their lake house at Belrive to try to put the past behind them.
  • Victor goes off by himself to the valley of Chamounix and feels momentary happiness due to how sublime it is (again with the sublime nature bit —pay attention), but the feeling passes.
