Analysis: Chapter 24 & Walton, in Continuation
By this point in the novel, Victor has assumed the veryinhumanity of which he accuses the monster. Just as the monsterearlier haunts Victor, seeking revenge on him for having destroyedany possibility of a mate for him, Victor now experiences an obsessiveneed to exact revenge on the monster for murdering his loved ones.Like the monster, he finds himself utterly alone in the world, withnothing but hatred of his nemesis to sustain him.
Echoes of the monster’s earlier statements now appearin Victor’s speech, illustrating the extent to which Victor hasbecome dehumanized. “I was cursed by some devil,” he cries, “andcarried about with me my eternal hell.” This is the second allusionto the passage in Paradise Lost in which Satan, cast out from Heaven,says that he himself is Hell. The first allusion, made by the monsterafter being repulsed by the cottagers, is nearly identical: “I,like the arch fiend, bore a hell within me.” Driven by their hatred,the two monsters—Victor and his creation—move farther and fartheraway from human society and sanity.
