I need your help in placing these Dickens characters. I think they might be found in Our Mutual Friend but I’m not sure and if not, what work are they from?
One of the recurring settings of the book (whatever it is) is a series of dinner parties hosted by a nouveau riche couple and their circle of friends. Among the attendees at the dinner parties are a man and woman who eventually marry. These are the characters I am trying to place. The important aspect of these particular characters is that they are both poor, but trying to appear rich. Their performances are so good that they marry, each supposing that the other, being rich, will alleviate their poverty. It is only after they are married that they discover the truth about each other.
Can anyone help me place them?
