PERMISSION TO ADDRESS THE COURT...


Here is your page of the week. In this scene, Justine has been taken to court having been framed for the murder of Victor's baby brother William. A fierce courtroom renders all the witnesses fearful to come forward. All, that is, except for Elizabeth. Elizabeth stands and addresses the court in hopes that her testimony will sway the jury into finding her good friend Justine innocent.

" I am well acquainted with the accused. I have lived in the same house with her. During all that period she appeared to me the most amiable and benevolent of human creatures. She nursed Madame Frankenstein, my aunt, in her last illness with the greatest affection and care; and afterwards attended her own mother during a tedious illness. She was warmly attached to the child who is now dead, and acted towards him like a most affectionate mother. For my own part, I do not hesitate to say, that, notwithstanding all the evidence produced against her, I believe and rely on her perfect innocence.”

  1. Just curious what the ratio of text to images will be for this one. Will this be heavily illustrated like your Poes were?

  3. Yes Nora. This will be like Tales of Mystery and Madness and Tales of Death and Dementia. All original text by Mary Shelley, but abridged and heavily illustrated.
