The recollection of this injustice

The Creature is an acute reader of his own history, aware that amid his accumulated experiences of victimization some cases were freer than others from any possible mitigation. He concentrates here on the two instances (see 2.7.10 and 2.8.7) where his own disinterested benevolence was rewarded with a violent attack on his person. For all Victor's repeated threats to grapple with his Creature, it is interesting to observe that after his creation he never again physically touches him.
