This storyboard does not have a description.
On a "dreary night of November", Frankenstein finally brought to life the monstrosity that he had been creating for months. (Shelley 43)
Victor is horrified and disgusted at the creation. His months of hardship resulted in this monster.
"... but now that I finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and now breathless horror and disgust filled my heart." (Shelley 43)
Victor ran away to his bedroom to escape the monster. When he tries to rest he is "unable to compose my (his) mind to sleep." Eventually, he slept and began to dream... (Shelley 44)
In Victor's dream, he sees Elizabeth and his mother in the streets of Ingolstadt. When he goes to embrace them, they both die.
"...but as I imprinted the first kiss on her lips, they became livid with the hue of death; her features appeared to change, and I thought I held the corpse of my dead mother in my arms." (Shelley 44)
When Frankenstein awakes from his nightmare, he sees the monster towering over him, watching him as he sleeps. He feels the monster is going to attack him, so he runs down to the courtyard to spend the night.
"I beheld the wretch--the miserable monster I have created. [...] His jaws opened, and he muttered some inarticulate sounds, while a grin wrinkled his cheeks. He might have spoken, but I did not hear." (Shelley 44)
Frankenstein spends the rest of his night restless. He is pacing back and forth with his heart and mind racing. He is still horrified at what he has done. The monster is something "even Dante can not have conceived." (Shelley 44)
