Frankenstein by Mary Shelley Summary
Robert Walton, the captain of a ship going for the North Pole, writes to his sister in England about the progress of his risky journey in a series of letters. The effort is first successful, but it is quickly thwarted by oceans of impenetrable ice. When Walton is trapped, he meets Victor Frankenstein, who has been travelling through the ice on a dog-drawn sledge and is crippled by the cold. Walton takes him onboard ship, assists in his recovery, and learns the incredible storey of Frankenstein’s monster.
Victor begins by recounting his early years in Geneva. Victor attends the university of Ingolstadt to study natural philosophy and chemistry at the conclusion of a happy childhood spent with Elizabeth Lavenza (his cousin in the 1818 version, his adoptive sister in the 1831 edition) and friend Henry Clerval. There, he is obsessed by the urge to understand the mystery of life and believes he has discovered it after many years of investigation.
Victor spends months busily fashioning a monster out of ancient body parts, armed with the information he has long sought. He brings his idea to life one climactic night in the privacy of his apartment. However, when he sees the abomination that he has produced, he is horrified. He flees into the streets after a restless night of sleep, broken by the phantom of the monster hanging over him, and wanders in regret. Victor meets Henry, who has come to the university to study, and he drives him back to his flat. Despite the fact that the creature is no longer there, Victor develops a fever.

Victor prepares to return to Geneva, to his family, and to health, sickened by his heinous crime. However, just before leaving Ingolstadt, he gets word from his father that his younger brother, William, has been slain. Victor rushes home, heartbroken. He sees the monster while travelling through the woods where his brother was strangled and believes the creature is his brother’s killer. When Victor arrives in Geneva, he discovers that Justine Moritz, a kind, gentle child adopted by the Frankenstein family, has been charged. Despite her claims of innocence, she is tried, convicted, and killed. Victor becomes devastated when he realises that the monster he has created is responsible for the deaths of two innocent family members.
Victor takes a trip to the mountains to help him cope with his sadness. The creature approaches him one day when he is alone, traversing a massive glacier. The monster confesses to killing William but begs for forgiveness. He claims that he lashed out at William in a frantic effort to damage Victor, his cruel creator, because he was lonely, ostracised, and lonesome. The monster asks Victor to make him a mate, another ugly creature to be his solitary companion.
Victor initially resists, terrified by the possibility of producing a new monster. The monster, on the other hand, is eloquent and persuasive, and he ultimately persuades Victor. Following his return to Geneva, Victor travels to England with Henry in order to acquire knowledge for the development of a female monster. Henry returns to Scotland and isolates himself on a remote island in the Orkneys, where he works grudgingly to duplicate his initial accomplishment. Victor looks out the window one night, doubting the morality of his deeds, and sees the creature looking in at him with a terrifying smile. Victor kills his new invention, terrified of the probable ramifications of his effort. Enraged, the monster swears vengeance, promising to be with Victor on Victor’s wedding night.
Victor takes a boat out into a lake later that night and throws the remnants of the second monster into the water. The wind speeds up, making it impossible for him to return to the island. He comes ashore at an unfamiliar village in the morning. Upon arrival, he is detained and told that he will stand trial for a murder that occurred the night before. Victor denies any involvement in the murder, but when the corpse is shown, he is stunned to see his buddy Henry Clerval, who has the monster’s fingermark on his neck. Victor becomes unwell, ranting and feverish, and is imprisoned until he recovers. He is then absolved of the crime.

Victor marries Elizabeth shortly after arriving to Geneva with his father. He is terrified of the monster’s threat and believes he will be killed on his wedding night. To be safe, he dispatches Elizabeth to wait for him. While waiting for the monster, he hears Elizabeth scream and knows the monster was implying that the monster would murder his new wife, not himself. Victor comes home to his father, who soon passes away from sadness. Victor pledges to spend the rest of his life hunting down the monster and exacting his vengeance, and he sets off on his mission shortly after.
Victor pursues the creature across the ice to the north. Victor almost catches up to the monster in a dogsled pursuit, but the water underneath them rises and the ice cracks, leaving an unbridgeable distance between them. Walton meets Victor at this point, and the storey jumps to the period of Walton’s fourth letter to his sister.
The rest of the narrative is told in a series of letters to Walton’s sister. Victor, who was already sick when the two men met, quickly deteriorated and died. When Walton goes to the chamber where the corpse is found some days later, he is surprised to discover the creature grieving over Victor. Walton is told by the monster of his terrible loneliness, sorrow, hate, and regret. He claims that now that his creator has passed away, he can also put an end to his misery. The creature then flees to the furthest reaches of the ice to perish.
