In Chapter 13, a beautiful visitor called Safie visits the cottagers. Their sorrows turn to happiness. The monster learns to talk and read when the cottagers attempt to teach Safie their language. He realises he's different. He has studied books including Paradise Lost and compares himself to Satan and Adam for being outcast by his creator. He has never been taken care of, he realises he doesn't participate with his beloved cottagers. He feels outcast.

In chapter 15 the monster tells Frankenstein that he had desperately been seeking acceptance by the cottagers. He has read Sorrows of Wetter, Paradise Lost and Plutarch's Lives. He also finds some of Victor's journals that he reads and quickly learns his own creator has spurned him. He hopes the cottagers will bestow acceptance. He approaches DeLacey for the first time. DeLacey is blind and does not judge him. He listens to him and allows him to relate his tale. A sightless man is the only one who bestows on him compassion.

The monster's heart is betrayed by the other cottagers who enter. Felix instantly attacks him upon seeing him. The monster's plight with the cottagers thus fails.
