The holy man who heard my confession, and reconciled me to the church, is dead. He thinks that once he has money, he can get Juliet back. The creature in Frankenstein, for example, reads books associated with radical ideals but the education he gains from them is ultimately useless.

There was no time for pondering or balancing nicely the question: I was sentenced to banishment; and, as my debts were already enormous, my remaining property was put in the hands of commissioners for their payment.

I trod the pavement of my ancestral palace. I would return to Paris-thus, on foot--a beggar--and present myself in my poverty to those I had formerly entertained sumptuously? The old man mildly strove to recall me to reason.

Acre after acre, estate after estate, I sold. I began to walk towards Genoa. The dark breakers threw hither and thither the fragments of the wreck: Then again I would abjure and despise Genoa, that little corner of the world.

Yet I remember you not on board. There Mary Shelley gave birth to her third child, Clara, on 2 September. Well, well--I will not blacken these pages with demoniac ravings. A few happy ventures as a merchant would make me rich again.

A mad desire to possess this treasure was born within me. Even now my heart fails within me when I recur to this rout of grim-visaged ideas. A crash of thunder broke over my head at the moment that, with a frightful shock, the skiff dashed upon her unseen enemy. Perhaps I can allay the tempest of your fortunes as I did my own.

During dark night 1 slept, and dreamt of the accomplishment of my desires. I was disconnected with any political party. It neared and neared. It was a well got up storm, you must allow--and all of my own making. But Power, in all its shapes, is venerable to man.

I was somewhat accustomed to my distorted limbs; none were ever so ill adapted for a straight-forward movement; it was with infinite difficulty that I proceeded. The morrow dawned upon me as I lay upon the shingles, and I knew not my own shadow as it fell from me. These traits are not portrayed positively; as Blumberg writes, "his relentless ambition is a self-delusion, clothed as quest for truth".

Three days thus I passed. Some things I possess which you may covet; but I would give them all for a small share, or even for a loan of what is yours.

The waves raised their white crests; the thunder first muttered, then roared from across the waste of waters, which took a deep purple dye, flecked with foam.
