Deaths in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein ➤ Elizabeth Lavenza 
❝She was there, lifeless and inanimate, thrown across the bed, her head hanging down, and her pale and distorted features half covered by her hair. Every where I turn I see the same figure—her bloodless arms and relaxed form flung by the murderer on its bridal bier. … I rushed towards her, and embraced her with ardour; but the deathly languor and coldness of the limbs told me, that what I now held in my arms had ceased to be the Elizabeth whom I had loved and cherished.❞

Deaths in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein ➤ Henry Clerval 
❝As he was proceeding along the sands, he struck his foot against something, and fell all his length on the ground. His companions came up to assist him; and, by the light of their lantern, they found that he had fallen on the body of a man, who was to all appearance dead. Their first supposition was, that it was the corpse of some person who had been drowned, and was thrown ashore by the waves; but, upon examination, they found that the clothes were not wet, and even that the body was not then cold. … He appeared to be a handsome young man, about five and twenty years of age. He had apparently been strangled; for their was no sign of any violence, except the black mark of fingers on his neck.
"I gasped for breath; and, throwing myself on the body, I exclaimed, ‘Have my murderous machinations deprived you also, my dearest Henry, of life? Two I have already destroyed; other victims await their destiny: but you, Clerval, my friend, my benefactor—’ ❞
