In this chapter, we learn that the monster has been blinded by his hatred for Desdemona, and that he has been unable to control his rage. He is now powerless, and he asks the goddess to meet his death. The goddess replies that she is powerless now, but that she did not expect her control to last so long. She tells the monster that her control over him is over, and she asks him how he came to be still alive. The monster replies that he is still alive, although he is useless. He asks her to meet her death, but she replies that it is her fault, for she was unable to get out of her predicament. She thanks the monster for his spiritual power, and says that she would have been dead if it were not for his power.
