Readers are less aware of the split between Walton, the creature, and Frankenstein's narratives as a result
Difference in Structure
There is more context regarding...
The recent death of Mary Shelley’s first baby
Her dissatisfaction with Percy Shelley’s Romantic ideology
Her political observation of the aftermath of the French Revolution
Her scientific curiosity regarding the experiments with galvanic electricity.

1831: He is seen entirely to be in the hands of fate. He seems to be helpless to counteract what nature has thrown at him

1818: She is Victor's cousin
1831: She is an orphan adopted by Mr. & Mrs. Frankenstein
