Justine confessed to killing poor William Frankenstein. This is proved in the quote, "It is decided as you may have expected; all judges had rather that ten innocent should suffer than that one guilty should escape. But she has confessed," (Shelley 82).
What have I done.
When Victor and Elizabeth visit Caroline in jail after confessing she tells them that she is innocent while crying at their knees. The quote," I did confess, but I confessed a lie. I confessed that i might obtain absolution; but now my falsehood lies heavier at my heart then all my other sins," (Shelley 83).
Justine is executed. This is shown in the quote, "And on the morrow Justine died. Elizabeth's heart-rendering eloquence failed to move the judges from their settled conviction," (Shelley 85). This quote explains that Justine died even though Elizabeth tried her hardest to save her life from being falsely accused of the death of William Frankenstein.
Victor feels guilty because he believes Justine's death is his fault for he was the one that created the murderous monster. In the quote, "My passionate and indigent appeals were lost upon the. And when i recieved their cold answers nd heard the harsh,unfeeling reasoning of these men, my purposed avole died away on my lips," (Shelley 85), Victor explains how heartbroken he was when he heard that Justine was dead he he knew it was his fault.
Elizabeth is sad and unhappy after the death of Justine because they were very close and good friends. A Quote that empasizes this feeling is, "...I turned to contemplate the deep and voicless greif of my Elizabeth. This also Was my doing," (Shelley 85).
Two members of the frankenstein family are dead now and Victor knows the creature he created is responisble. This is proved in the quote, "I beheld those I loved spend veined sorrow upon the graves of William and Justine, the first hapless victem to my unhallowed arts," (Shelley 85).
