It asks itself. (Chapter XV) The muddying of generations and generation reflects the confusion Mary Shelley felt regarding her own involved family situation, surrounded by the half-sisters of both her mother's earlier and her father's later liaisons. Some critics have read into the more macabre scenes of Frankenstein undertones of vampirism (a favourite with Lord Byron) and incest, i shall be with you on your wedding night,' cries the creature to Victor, who is in a sense its mother and father.
I often feared that his suffering had deprived him of understanding . . He is generally melancholy and despairing . ' 36 This is not the monster but Victor, before Victor tells his story to Walton. We have only his word for the story's accuracy, just as, finally, we have only the monster's promises, as he disappears into darkness and distance, that he will destroy himself. The outcome of all the trials (there are four in the book) are unreliable; are we then encouraged to trust our witnesses? i am the assassin of these most innocent creatures; they died by my machinations'; again not the monster but Victor is speaking of the deaths his creature caused.
Surprisingly, the novel ends on a tranquil note. Instead of Frankenstein's final darkness and distance, distance here embraces the light, the glorious light of the south, the equator.
