1.1.1 pg. 102: "you, my creator, detest and spurn me, thy creature, to whom thou art bound"
1.2 The language Victor uses to describe his work suggests that it is shameful/unholy.
1.2.1 pg. 55: "the horrors of my secret toil", "unhallowed", "filthy creation"
1.3 Context: Religion was strong during the 19th Century.
2 Shelley creates a secular world.
2.1 There is no vengeful God to punish Victor, just a vengeful monster.
2.1.1 pg. 173: "Man, you shall repent of the injuries you inflict."
2.2 Christian myth serves only to provide anologies.
2.2.1 pg. 134: "I remembered Adam's supplication to his Creator. But where was mine?"
