Emotional entanglement and confrontation are seen in inescapable connection to the bonds of money: Money impinges, either as the bruising's of poverty or as the isolation's that accompany luxury. It warps identity: it tragically confuses the issues of responsibility and love.
Rose is an eccentric, indeed notorious, heiress who, ten years before, at twenty-one, had publicly defied her parents to marry a penniless man, then had written away her immense fortune with one check and willed herself into a shabby but rigorous poverty.
