all bounds of moderation
Although Victor had earlier moralized against letting the pursuit of
knowledge run away with one's sober judgment (1.3.8), here he portrays himself as
indulging his hatred with the kind of impulsiveness and lack of restraint
he had displayed in Ingolstadt. It
is clear that what Alphonse
Frankenstein had termed "immoderate grief" three paragraphs earlier
(2.1.1) is not Victor's problem.
