“The pleasant showers and genial warmth of spring greatly

altered the aspect of the earth. Men who before this change

seemed to have been hid in caves dispersed themselves and

were employed in various arts of cultivation. The birds sang in

more cheerful notes, and the leaves began to bud forth on the

trees. Happy, happy earth! Fit habitation for gods, which, so

short a time before, was bleak, damp, and unwholesome. My

spirits were elevated by the enchanting appearance of nature;

the past was blotted from my memory, the present was tran-

quil, and the future gilded by bright rays of hope and anticipa-

tions of joy.”


Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus
