It has all the themes because this is when the big event happens. Victor has finally created his monster and attached all the pieces together. Victor gets so scared of his creation and retreats. Victor gets sick due to what he saw and his friend Henry nurses him back to health. Man uses nature is clear because he just created a monster using nature.

Loneliness is because after he created the monster he let him there all alone and didn't care about going back. Higher society is more corrupt because Victor is from the higher and for him doing this experiment I would consider him a little on the corrupt side.
