Frankenstein Chapter 19 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Victor and Clerval arrive in London in October. Victor continues to despair, avoiding people unless they have information that can help him create a second monster. Clerval, in contrast, is how Victor used to be: excited by learning and wanting to meet and talk to everyone.
Clerval's innocence contrasts with Victor and shows the joy and delight Victor's ambition cost him.
