Sample text

Victor says that ‘Clerval called forth the better feelings of my heart; he again taught me to love the aspect of nature and the cheerful faces of children’ (p. 117). However, the fact that this is learned means that it compromises the supposedly natural status of the sublime; although, provisionally, it enables Victor to reclaim his past, a past which is associated with the sublime: I became the same happy creature who, a few years ago, loved and beloved by all, had no sorrow or care.

Often these are related to how the sublime supplies a false perception of the world. However, the idea of misinterpretation and misunderstanding is introduced early on in the novel in the relationship between Victor and Robert Walton.
