The Climax in Frankenstein novel

Junior (College 3rd year) ・Literature ・MLA ・1 Sources

The climax occurs when Elizabeth is killed. She is murdered by the monster on the night of her wedding with Victor in chapter 23. Whilst Victor is busy prowling the halls of the cottage where he and Elizabeth are to have their honeymoon, the monster enters the bedroom and strangles Elizabeth to death. It is ironical that victor is unable to recognize the true intentions of the monster. It is clear to the reader that Elizabeth will be the one to bear the wrath of the creature while victor leaves her completely unprotected. After Elizabeth’s death, Victor becomes indistinguishable from the monster and they both become loveless, bereaved and haunted by the desires to revenge.

Victor's Failure

Victor’s greatest failure is evident from chapter 17 when he complies with the creator's request of making a female companion for him. This failure has led to the devastating events that happen in the chapters that follow and climaxing in chapter 23 by the death of Elizabeth. Throughout the novel, the creature's longing desires to bring havoc, violence, destruction, and revenge brought great fear to Victor. He thought that failure to comply will make the creature to cause destruction and thus agrees to his requests. Victor also thinks that the creation of another creature will lead to “joint wickedness” (Shelley 205). In order to save his family and the rest of the humanity, Victor goes to the laboratory and starts the monster creation. In chapter 20, Victor becomes horrified by his task and he is tormented with critical questions like if the creature will be similar to her mate and cause destruction along with the consequences if he refused to comply. While in his laboratory, the creature visits him and victor breaks his promise. Filled with anger, the creature chooses to revenge upon his creator. The creature tells Victor that “I will be with you on your wedding-night” (Shelley 238). It is on this night that the creature strangles Elizabeth to death.

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
