"The pleasent sunshine and the pure air of day restored me to some degree of tranquility; and when I considered what had passed at the cottage, I could not help to believe that I had been too hasty in my conclusions."
The monster learns most everything he knows through spying on a family in their cottage, but when he tries to introduce himself he scares them away. The rejection made him so distraught he considered destroying the whole town, but the beauty of nature compelled him to return to the cottage and try again. Unfortunately when he arrived the family had moved. The perfection of nature bringing hope and faith to the monster is a romantic element.
The monster tries to convince Frankenstein to create a companion for him, despite knowing she would have the same awful fate he has. This shows that the monster considers himself more important than society because he would rather risk the effects that having more of his kind would have on society, then continue to be lonely. Frankenstein doesn't go through with his second creation.
"I was now about to form another being, of whose dispositions I was alike ignorant; she might become ten thousand times more malignant than her mate and delight, for its own sake, in murder and wretchedness."
"I slept, indeed but I was disturbed by the wildest dreams, I thought I saw Elizabeth, in the bloom of health... But as I imprinted the first kiss on her lips, they became livid with the hue of death."
In an attempted to get revenge on Frankenstein, the monster kills his wife, Elizabeth. Earlir in the novel Shelley foreshadowed her death through a dream Frankenstein had. Her death is also foreshadowed by the monster telling Frankenstein he will see him on his wedding night.
"Never will I give up my search until he or I perish; and then with what ecstasy shall I join my Elizabeth and my departed friends."
Frankenstein followed the monster to the North Pole in an attempted to kill him. This remote location is an element of Romanticism because of the lack of worldly things and extreme weather conditions. The conditions of the setting add more sorrow for Frankenstein, enhancing the romantic novel.
Frankenstein felt compelled to tell Walton his story in order to persuade him to continue the hunt to kill the monster now that Frankenstein is no longer capable. He was also very lonely and wanted to share his sorrows to get it off his chest. Walton might have learned from Frankensteins story that a well-rounded life is a good one; so don't be consumed by one goal. Doing so could lead to having nothing else when the goal is met or disappointment if it isn't. From reading this novel I learned that romantics tend to believe they are more important than society. I believe Frankenstein should have taken care of his creation and the tragic events could have been avoided. The monster seems to have a good heart, but seclusion and being treated as a monster lead him to behave like one. Shelley presented many lessons such as the importance of compassion, to not judge peoples actions without understanding their reasoning, and to take responsibility for your actions.
