NOTES

apparition of the monster

The undertone in which the text, as Walton reasserts his control over it, questions the statements of its narrators continues here as Walton twice—and in the formulation of a logical proof ("conviction of the truth" . . . "Such a monster has then really existence")—thoughtlessly borrows Victor's diction to describe the Creature. Careful readers will remember that the "apparition . . . seen from our ship" was described very differently at the time (I:L4:3).
