Curiously, in this respect the Creature is the opposite of Victor
Frankenstein, whom he otherwise mirrors in so many aspects. Victor was so
preoccupied with inscribing his experiences in such a way as to exonerate
himself that he corrected Walton's transcript of his narration (Walton 2). Oddly enough, the only
tangible memory that the Creature existed is embodied in Walton's
manuscript, of which he is ignorant.
