"(Shelly 39). Although, unrelated to Victor, Henry came to see him and to check up on him because no one had heard of him for days. Hence the book and the movie are very similar concerning Victor in this scene.
There are many differences in this scene as well. For example in the movie Victor Frankenstein had much inspiration. First his mother died and even though that happened in the book as well he was still planning to go to Ingolstadt and to study as shown in this quotation: "When I had attained the age of seventeen my parents resolved that I should become a student at the university of Ingolstadt"my mother sickened"She died calmly""(Shelley 28-29). Second, M. Waldman becomes a quasi-mentor to young Victor Frankenstein in the Branagh"tms movie"tms plot while in Shelley"tms original plot he was just the friendlier teacher. In Branagh"tms version he was an older wiser version of Victor that had already attempted a similar experiment and was very close but decided to stop before things went out of control and was not persistent as Victor was. Though Victor"tms persistence could be d

His father, Alphonse, then receives many types of protection for the honeymoon so that no one is hurt or killed. In Shelley"tms version he just kept to himself and armed himself as such: "I carried pistols and a dagger constantly about me and was ever on the watch to prevent artifice, and by these means gained a greater degree of tranquility."(Shelley, 169) He thus had slightly different outcomes in each version. In Branagh"tms version he had the monster come into the room and rip into Elizabeth"tms flesh causing her to die later escaped unharmed. On the other hand in Shelley"tms book the monster broke in, strangled her, and flees with a bullet wound from Victor"tms pistol. This is where Shelley"tms book ends and from here Branagh picks the plot up with Elizabeth being carried in his Victor"tms hands her back to the house and into the laboratory where he uses the spare parts of Justine (which was going to be the monster"tms new girl) and revives Elizabeth with them. The monster comes in and they start
