occurrences which are usually deemed marvellous

Mary Shelley has already prepared for Walton's receptivity to Victor's story, since in the narrative he acknowledges to his sister, "there is a love for the marvellous, a belief in the marvellous, intertwined in all my projects" (I:L2:6). In the context in which Mary Shelley was writing, an apt synonym for the word would be "romantic."
