In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the author uses rhythm, rhetorical questions and similes to convey emotions through words. Though the excerpt, Shelley uses rhythm to portray some emotions and even the tone of the novel. Though we know the actual monster is “The Monster” minute details point to another thing "But now misery has come home, and men appear to be monsters."

The author writes so many suspenseful and thrilling parts, it makes you ponder, “ What will happen?”.
