Chapter five is a very important chapter in the play, Frankensteins struggle is finally over, and the monster finally lives. However, not everything turned out the way Frankenstein wanted to, and answers to his questions such as where does life begin have not been found. Shelley uses lots of informative adjectives to make the chapter seem more dramatic, for example, she says the monster has watery eyes and black lips. This tells us how Frankenstein had tried to make the monster beautiful, but in the process had made the monster grotesque by bringing the different body parts together.
This creates a very powerful image in our minds of what the monster looks like. Shelley also creates a very dramatic atmosphere by using pathetic fallacy to set the mood of the chapter by using the weather as a powerful tool to mimic how Frankenstein is feeling. For instance It was a dreary night in November and also Morning, dismal and wet makes us feel the depressed mood of the opening paragraph, and doing so adds a dramatic air of tension to the play.
When the monster begins to come to life, the sense of unknown that we get also creates dramatic tension; we dont know what will happen, which is a very powerful device to use. For instance, I saw the yellow eye of the creature open, it breathed hard and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs. This creates tension, as we do not yet know whether the creature is alive, and so far it is not the incredible perfect human that Frankenstein was hoping for. However, we can tell by the sentence that something is wrong with the monster and the experiment might have failed.
