]I have always seen him as very lupine - calculating, hungry for action, on the prowl, predatory. I think he is jealous of M and R, but I don't really think this is out of any affection for Maud. I doubt that he ever had anything but self interest in that relationship anyway.
Absolutely, wolf would imply all those things. But another twist is the fact that he goes hunting at those feminist gatherings. So, is he masquerading as a wolf in sheep's clothing?? Are all these women sheep? Sheep are known for their stupidity (I saw sheep being herded by dogs--a wolf ancestor--when I was downunder. Right Hil??); they will follow anything.
]do you not have to accept that if Fergus is Maud's ex-lover, then Blanche must have been Christabel's sexual partner for a while?
I drew my relationship parallels between Leonora and Maud.
