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).
