In Chapter 22 of Frankenstein, what was Victor's plan for the monster on his wedding night?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Victor plans to kill the Monster if necessary.  He states:

"I took every precaution to defend my person in case the fiend should openly attack me. I carried pistols and a dagger constantly about me . . ." (179).

He even plans to take Elizabeth to a remote location.  Unfortunately, Victor misinterprets the Monster's intention and threat.  He thinks that the Monster plans to kill him on his wedding night, but the Monster's ill intentions are toward Elizabeth.  He will destroy Victor's love as Victor destroyed his (the female creation).
