The Geography of Frankenstein KEY
Henry (only with Frankenstein)
The Monster St. Petersburg,
Russia This is where Walton's journey begins. He is writing to 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 water toward the North Pole. Out here is where he meets Frankenstein and where Frankenstein dies and the monster is last seen. The Ocean and Seas We aren't sure exactly where
Walton sails, or where he ends up. Geneva,
Switzerland Naples, Italy Naples is the birth place of Frankenstein. Lake Como,
Italy When visiting here, Frankenstein and his family meet and adopt Elizabeth Lavenza. Up until this point Frankenstein traveled around Europe with his parents. Today Lake Como is still a common tourist area. This is where Frankenstein grows up and lives with his family. Henry Clerval lives here too. Belrive, Switzerland When Frankenstein was 15 his family and him moved to their house here for awhile. It is a suburb just outside Geneva. This is where he saw the tree struck by lightening that sparked more of his scientific wondering. Ingolstadt, Germany At the age of 17 he was supposed to leave to go to school here, his journey gets shortly deferred because of his mother's death. Here he continues his education in science and becomes very interested in natural philosophy. It is here were he builds the monster. Henry and Frankenstein meet up here and Henry nurses him back to health after he becomes sick because of his monster. Secheron,
Switzerland 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, and killed unjustly for the murder. Frankenstein spends time at the house here as well and rowing on the near by lake both during and after the trial. Chamounix, France Frankenstein journey here is supposed to be a get-away from his stress from William's and Justine's death. He travels to Apline valley by going through the ravine of Arve and passing over the bridge of Pelisser. Mount Blanc over looks the valley. Here is were he 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 were 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 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. It continues like that most of the rest of the way. 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.
