Frankenstein Ch. 15
Transcript of Frankenstein Ch. 15
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
The monster finds 3 books in a jacket and takes Paradise Lost too literal because it had so much in common with his life. He then seeks to befriend a blind man, without the chance of prejudice remarks and when this occurs the family sees him and hurriedly drives the monster away.
While foraging for food in the woods around the cottage one night, the monster finds an abandoned leather satchel containing some clothes and books. Eager to learn more about the world than he can discover through the chink in the cottage wall, he brings the books back to his hovel and begins to read. The books include Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s
Sorrows of Werter
, a volume of Plutarch’s
, and John Milton’s
, the last of which has the most profound effect on the monster. Unaware that
is a work of imagination, he reads it as a factual history and finds much similarity between the story and his own situation.

Dismayed by these discoveries, the monster wishes to reveal himself to the cottagers in the hope that they will see past his hideous exterior and befriend him. He decides to approach the blind De Lacey first, hoping to win him over while Felix, Agatha, and Safie are away. He believes that De Lacey, unprejudiced against his hideous exterior, may be able to convince the others of his gentle nature.
The perfect opportunity soon presents itself, as Felix, Agatha, and Safie depart one day for a long walk. The monster nervously enters the cottage and begins to speak to the old man. Just as he begins to explain his situation, however, the other three return unexpectedly. Felix drives the monster away, horrified by his appearance.
