Virginia is enlightened by these conversations because she wholeheartedly cares about the past, present, and future of the world, and she is aware of its impact on her life and destiny. In contrast to the Soul-mate who is dainty and frail, Virginia is almost godly in her physical and mental capacity. She does not hesitate to contradict Mr. Fteley who doubts her capability, “The world is full of leaden slugs like you … You hope that mountain climbers and acrobats fall, that daring bridges collapse” (243).
