10 Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me, that I might infuse a spark of being into the lifeless thing that lay at my feet. It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs.

11 Mary Shelley’s ‘Frankenstein’ This extract is taken from Chapter Five of Mary Shelley's 1818 novel Frankenstein. Read the final section of the extract again: It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs. Using your inference and deduction skills try to answer the following questions: 1.Does the narrator sound energetic or exhausted? Explain your answer. 2.Does the creature appear attractive?
