The conceit of Lady Eleanore Rochcliffe

In a second excerpt Bunge finds the crowd to be not so different from the story's cruel heroine. (courtesy of Twayne Publishers)

The crowd could not encourage Lady Eleanore's conceit if they did not share it. Indeed, Lady Eleanore behaves cruelly for her audience as much as for herself.
