Victor basically shuns the monster and forces him to be out on his own in the wild. "The desert mountains and dreary glaciers are my refuge...The caves of ice, which I only do not fear, are a dwelling to me..." (Shelley 89).
The monster sees Felix sad about something. He waits in anticipation to see why Felix is in such dismay.
Safie, the Arabian, turns out to be the reason Felix was sad. She returns to him and that cures his sadness.
The Monster watches Safie learn the language Felix teaches her and begins to teach himself. The Monster surpasses Safie and becomes a smart, self sufficient creature
Seeing all of the people around him, The Monster begins to notice just how different he is. He says, “Was I then a monster,” he asks, “a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled, and whom all men disowned?"
Due to The Monster staying in hiding, he begins to learn more about the people living in the cottages and their stories. He begins to educate himself and learn history along with language.
