I'm always so pleased that Wardley-Fish ditches Melody Clutterbuck (aren't they great names?), and that he comes to the realization so quickly and finally, because of his chance purchace and appreciation of Theophilis's book. He suddenly becomes a much more complex and important character, something we kind of suspect, but are not sure will happen.
I always find this chilling:
'I am frightened of her, he thought, and it is far too young to know such a thing.'
Thank goodness he doesn't ignore his gut reaction and marry her!
