What happens to the guilty and what happens to the innocent? What is Mary Shelly trying to point out?

Thank you

The guilty outlive the innocent but lead a tortured existence. Shelly seems to paint a rather divine light around the innocent. They die uncontaminated by negative emotions of their own. They all tend to be altruistic in nature. The guilty live a life full of damnation, guilt, and regret.
