Frankenstein: Chapter 5

What description does Victor use to describe his creation’s eye when he first brings his creation to life? “dull, yellow eye.”
How does Victor feel when he first brings the creation to life. Victor feels violently ill, as though he has witnessed a great catastrophe.
Why did he feel that his creation was a catastrophe? Though he had selected the creature’s parts because he considered them beautiful, the finished man is hideous: he has thin black lips, inhuman eyes, and a sallow skin through which one can see the pulsing work of his muscles, arteries, and veins.
What dream plagues Victor when he retreats to his chamber to sleep after he brought his creation to life? He cannot sleep, plagued as he is by a dream in which he embraces and kisses Elizabeth, only to have her turn to his mother’s corpse in his arms.
When Victor wakes up, what does he find? And what does Victor do next? He awakens late at night to find the creature at his bedside, gazing at him with a fond smile. Though the monster endeavors to speak to him, he leaps out of bed and rushes off into the night. He frantically paces the courtyard for the remainder of the night, and determines to take a restless walk the moment that morning comes.
Who does Victor find in town after he leaves his house and when he was walking into town in Ingolstadt? While walking in town, Frankenstein sees his dear friend Henry Clerval alight from a carriage; overjoyed, he immediately forgets his own misfortunes. Clerval’s father has at last permitted him to study at Ingolstadt; the two old friends shall therefore be permanently reunited
When Victor meets up with Clerval, what does CLerval tell Victor? Henry tells Victor that his family is wracked with worry since they hear from him so rarely. He exclaims over Frankenstein’s unhealthy appearance; Victor, however, refuses to discuss the details of his project.
When Henry, the next morning, visits Victor, what does he find? The next morning, Henry finds him consumed with a hysterical fever. Victor remains bedridden for several months, under the assiduous care of Henry, who determines to conceal the magnitude of Victor’s illness from his family. Once Victor can talk coherently, Henry requests that he write a letter, in his own handwriting, to his family at Geneva. There is a letter from Elizabeth that awaits his attention.
