Homework: Make sure you are thoroughly finished with work through Chapter 5.
Quick Write Explain how the following quote is a paradox and then discuss Victor’s character traits that are revealed in the quote. “…from the midst of this darkness a sudden light broke upon me – a light so brilliant and wondrous, yet so simple, that while I became dizzy with the immensity of the prospect which it illustrated, I was surprised, that among so many men of genius who had directed their enquiries towards the same science, that I alone should be reserved to discover so astonishing a secret.” (31 – top of page)
