“…divine a retreat as Pandemonium appeared to the demons of hell after their sufferings in the lake of fire.” (pg. 93)
Here, Frankenstein’s monster references John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Milton created the word pandemonium from two words-- ‘pan’ meaning all or every and ‘daimon’ which meant demon. In the sense of Paradise Lost, Pandemonium was the capital of Hell. After that, Pandemonium also grew to represent Hell in general.
