Her aunt – correctly – considers him entirely unsuitable, though her disapproval derives from her religious scruples. In fact, Valcarm is something of an anarchist, and he eventually pressures the unworldly Linda into eloping with him. But he is swiftly arrested by the authorities and Linda returns to face the music, caught uncomfortably – and finally crushed – between the differing aspirations of three people wholly insensitive ot her own true feelings.
