Let’s play a version of Jeannette’s “Name that Character” game.
I’ll give you a quote, and you tell me who said it.
I can never remember without laughter how I once seduced a lady who was devoted to her husband, her children, and her principles. What fun it was and how little trouble!
A. Edward Rochester from Jane Eyre
B. Rodolphe Boulanger from Madame Bovary
C. Arkady Ivanovich Svidrigaïlov from Crime and Punishment
D. George Wickham from Pride and Prejudice
Here’s a hint.
So it’s not Mme B‘s Rodolphe. But didn’t it sound just like him?
So what was the correct answer?
Yes, you’re right! The answer was C.
C for Crime and Punishment. C for Creepy Svidrigaïlov. C for Connections to other Characters.
