    • A ROUND CHARACTER  It was “... as if she inhabited another sphere, or communicated with the common nature by other organs & senses than the rest of humankind. She stood apart from moral interests, yet close beside them, like a ghost that revisits the familiar fireside and can no longer make itself seen or felt, no more smile with the household joy, nor mourn with the kindred sorrow; or should it succeed in manifesting its forbidden sympathy, awakening only terror & horrible repugnance.” (p. 71)
