What his feelings were
Mary Shelley at once reminds us
that the Creature has feelings and that, except on the one occasion on Mont Blanc when he told his life
story (2.3.1), they are wholly
indecipherable to Victor, beset as he is with his calculations of revenge.
She also prepares us for his unmediated reintroduction into the arena of
the novel when in its last scene he comes aboard Walton's ship (Walton 12).
