Though both Victor and Clerval have passionate and creative characters, they express them very differently. Henry does it openly, with songs and plays; Victor, by contrast, does it privately, amidst books and philosophical meditations. His reading is directed toward the learning of secrets ­ of forbidden knowledge. This predisposition to secrecy plays an essential role in Victor's scientific work and its consequences.
