The Geography of Frankenstein
Robert Walton
Victor Frankenstein
Henry Clerval (only with Frankenstein)
The Creature/Monster
St. Petersburg,
This is where Walton's journey begins. He is writing to his sister Margaret (Mrs. Saville) about is up coming journey.
Archangel, Russia
This is where Walton travels to, gathers his crew from, and sets sail for his journey to find a path to North Pole. Archangel is now called Arkhangelsk.
Walton sets off in the Ocean toward the North Pole. Out here is where he meets a Stranger and where the Stranger tells his story of how he arrived there all alone and the purpose of his dangerous journey.
The Barents Sea and Arctic Ocean
Details of Walton's direction are not specifically given though the aim is the North Pole. The narration from the Stranger begins.
This is where Frankenstein grows up and lives with his family.
Henry Clerval
lives here too. It is also associated with the French Reformer, Predestinarian, John Calvin.
Belrive, Switzerland
When Frankenstein was 15, he and his family moved here for awhile. It is a suburb just outside Geneva. This is where Victor saw a tree struck by lightening that sparked more of his scientific wondering. It is also significant as the location where Victor became interested in Alchemy & Alchemists (Agrippa, Paracelsus, Albertus Magnus).
Ingolstadt, Germany
At the age of 17 Victor was supposed to leave for the University of Ingolstadt, home of the Bavarian Illuminati (Adam Weishaupt, founder)
but his journey gets shortly deferred because of his mother's death.
Here he continues his education in alchemy but develops a greater love for science and becomes very interested in natural philosophy. It is here that Victor creates his monster.
and Frankenstein meet up in Inglostadt and
nurses him back to health after he becomes sick because of realizing what he has done in creating his monster.
This is where Frankenstein arrives at night after the gates of Geneva are closed when returning home because of William's murder.
Frankenstein headed straight to his father's house the next day after arriving home. This is where he blames the monster for William's death and where Justine gets blamed, convicted, makes a false confession, and is put to death unjustly for the murder of William.
Frankenstein spends time at the house here as well as rowing on the nearby lake both during and after the trial.
Chamounix, France
Frankenstein's journey here in the Swiss Alps is supposed to be a get-away from his stress from William's and Justine's death. He travels to Alpine valley by going through the ravine of Arve and passing over the bridge of Pelisser. Mount Blanc overlooks the valley.
Here is where Victor journeys up the mountain and meets up with the "devil" for the first time since he created him.
The Monster's hut
in the mountains
This is where the monster
lives and tells his story.
This is where the monster's life begins when Frankenstein creates him.
The De Lacey Cottage
The actual location of the cottage is never given, it is described as in Germany and outside the village. It is assumed that the village is Ingolstadt.
This is where the monster hides out and watches the family, by doing this he picks up language skills such as reading and writing. He strives to make friends with the family but fails and this rejection by society makes him very mad.
The monster traveled to Geneva after the family left the cottage. The journey took him around 2 months because he really didn't know where he was going. He went to Geneva because he knew his creator was from there and wanted to seek revenge on him. His revenge was the murder of William. (he also framed Justine.
The monster retreats to here after some time after the murder, this is where he just told this story to Frankinstein.
Frankenstein arrives the next morning in Chamounix but does not stop and continues to head straight home to Geneva. He is going home to work on the monster's companion.
The monster is close by. We don't know the exact where-abouts of him, but we do know that he is watching and following Frankenstein. The creature's path is unknown but is either a shadow to Victor or a trail for Victor to later follow.
Frankensein promtly returns to Geneva after talking with his monster. Here he beguins work on the monster friend, although he is noy quick to recomence his work.
Frankensein quickly returns to Geneva after talking to the monster in order to begin making his companion. Although he is not quick to recomence his work.
Frankenstein needs to go to England to "get away" for awhile. He is going to get information from others regarding creating a companion monster.
Strasburg, France
This is the first stop on Frankenstein's journy to England. He meets up with Henry here, who is accompaning him on the trip.

Oxford, England
They spend some time here visiting the University city (Univ. of Oxford) where Percy Shelley himself had attended and been expelled for Atheism.

This is the next most major stop. They travel through and spend a brief time at Cumberland and Westmoreland England on their way here.
Perth, Scotland
They travel through Coupar, St.Andrew's and Tay Scotland to get here. This is where they meet up with Henry's friend. Frankenstein decides he wants to go work on his own for a while and sends Henry off on a tour of Scotland.
Orkney Islands, Scotland
This is where Frankenstein escapes in order to work on the monster. He finds a little cottage on the ocean to work. This is also where he decides to stop and destroy his work. He has contact with the monster here, who becomes very mad about the destruction of his female companion and then threatens Frankenstein.
