Lady Denham

April 05, 2013 02:56PM
I get the idea that Lady Denham is quite a social climber - does anyone else feel that way? It says she had enough money in her youth, but not education, that her first husband's merit too was firstly his money, and that she married her second husband mainly for his title - it feels to me as if she at least made good on social mobility, for she seems to have quite established herself as the leading lady of the neighbourhood, having secured Mr Parker's deference, and he a man whose family has been amongst Sanditon's haute ton for generations.

I am eager to learn more about her and particularly about the relationship between her and Sir Edward Denham - I wonder if that will give us more clues as to Lady Denham's origins and whether she is universally regarded as highly as by Mr Parker.

She does not quite strike me as similar to Lady Catherine - she seems not secure enough in her grandeur, what with being a penny-pincher occasionally.




Is it not strange that sheeps' guts should hale souls out of men's bodies?
