A Thing Not Conceived

“It became a thing such as even Dante could not have conceived” (44).

Dante is a famous writer known for his epic poem, The Divine Comedy. Dante fills his work with gruesome descriptions of hideous creatures as seen on a journey through Hell. Dante shows the repercussions of sinning as horrendous transfigurations according to the severity of their sins. Frankenstein is saying that his monster is beyond levels that Dante could never have imagined.
