Parasha: Frankenstein March 12th reading


Good grief Victor, you feel guilty, we GET it already. Yes, we do. No, really. No, HONEST we do. And, I might add, it just makes SO much sense to unburden your guilt and try to make up for it by... hiding yourself away and not even consoling the other people who are suffering. *headdesk*

I might have some further comment to make on the chapter if, y'know, it was anything more than WALLOWING IN WOE. Sheesh.

I had to read this aloud to poor reesei:
"Thus not the tenderness of friendship, nor the beauty of heaven, could redeem my soul from woe; the very accents of love were ineffectual. I was encompassed by a cloud which no beneficial influence could penetrate. The wounded deer dragging its fainting limbs to some untrodden brake, there to gaze upon the arrow which had pierced it, and to die, was but a type of me."

Oh, my, god. I'm not sure I've ever read anything that emo before. Just... wow.

hiding yourself away and not even consoling the other people who are suffering. *headdesk*

Me, I totally would've taken the girl with me on the camping trip -- don't they deserve this escape and soothing influence of Nature? But, no. Victor is exceedingly self-centered.

(Also, it might be contrary to local mores, them being unmarried and all. But still, he didn't even try.)
