Cursed, cursed creator!
This chapter begins with a remarkable series of linguistic echoes in which
the Creature echoes the language of Victor Frankenstein, in part to
indicate that comparable experiences have produced comparable misery, but
also to underscore the affinity of creator and creation. The first element
is this imprecation, a repetition of the curse Victor pronounced on
himself at their meeting on the Mer de
Glace (2.2.6 and note).
