new and dear objects of care will be born
This statement carries a subtle resonance, reminding us that this was
exactly the fear Victor entertained of his Creature if he were allowed a

"a race of devils [being] propagated upon the earth" (3.3.1 and note). Immersed as he is in irony, Victor
does not notice the similarity between his state and that of his Creature.
