It is evident that Gregory is now deeply infatuated with Lyndall. The book was first published in in London, under the pseudonym Ralph Iron. It is here that she reveals that she is tired and lonely — aching for something to love. While Em prepares a meal for Waldo, he begins to write a letter to Lyndall. There is the stage method.
