Time for a mea culpa on the part of your discussion leader. I have fallen down on my responsibilities. :blush: Unfortunately, I have had some health issues, but am now on the mend and will try to do better. Look for a post here later tonight.

Hi Cattleman, the discussions leader. We have to get the discussions going through the later chapters. I don't know what it is but people tend to get really enthusiastic about a book at first, and then put the book down and fail to finish it. No reply to chapters 7, 8 and 9 is an indication that no one has read this book beyond chapter 7. The only person replying beyond it seems to be me. Thus chapters 7, 8, and 9 is very important and people who have read should have more to say about it!

Post Re: Chapters 7, 8 and 9: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
In chapter 7 Victor gets a letter from his father informing him about the death of his younger brother William who was only 5. When Frankenstein hears the news, he has to get back to Geneva from Ingolstadt. Before Frankenstein gets to his family, he sees the monster looming and rightly suspects the monster is who's behind the murder. He later gives him the chance to attest this.

On reaching home, Victor discovers that Justine Moritz, a servant girl and friend to the family, is convicted of having commited the murder. She became a suspect because of a locket found in her pocket that the murderor took from poor William's death. Frankenstein believes Justine is innocent and believes the locket must have been planted in Justine's pocket by the real murderor (his monstrous creation).

In chapter 8 Frankenstein watches in horror as the innocent Justine is put on trial for William's murder. The only other person who believes in Justine's innocence is his beloved Elizabeth. The events that take place through chapters 7,8 and 9 make it obvious why Frankenstein will refuse to ever forgive and redeem his monster. He will never buy his story or adhere to the monster's pleas. Justine is innocent and bewildered. She talks in confused sentences that the jury intercepts as guilt. In the end Justine bows down to pressures and confesses to a crime she doesn't commit. Her confession throws off Elizabeth but not Frankenstein. Poor Justine is executed while the real monster roams society free.

In chapter 9 you will get gorgeous and sublime descriptions of nature. Frankenstein tries to forget his sorrows by losing himself with the beauties of Mont Blanc, the Alps and the Chamounix. Some incredibly beautiful narrations of nature is detailed through the pages on chapter 9.

Meanwhile, Alphonse, Frankenstein's father believes that Frankenstein's sorrows are all about William but he has no knowledge of the monster which is why Frankenstein really repents as well as Justine who's taken away from the world while innocent as the real monster roams free.
