The Moon


The Moon

“I started up and beheld a radiant form rise from among the trees.” (pg. 91)

This sentence is taken from the chapters narrated from the creature’s point of view while telling Frankenstein the story of his travels after running away from his creator. At the point that he is describing, the creature would have had no idea what the great white ball climbing into the sky but the reader knows that he is speaking of the moon.
