Example text

Lady Delacour’s anxieties about breastfeeding predate the wound to her breast which motivates the rest of her narrative. 18 Lady Delacour suggestively connects the healthiness of this female child with the debates surrounding the extent to which breastfeeding was natural or fashionable for eighteenthcentury mothers: It was the fashion at this time for fine mothers to suckle their own children – so much the worse for the poor brats … There was a prodigious rout made about the matter; a vast deal of sentiment and sympathy, and compliments and inquiries; but after the novelty was over, I became heartily sick of the business; and at the end of about three months my poor child was sick too – I don’t much like to think of it – it died.

All three women end tragically (as well as the sorry ends of Lady Newenden and Lady Pevensey described above, Nelly is swindled of her fortune and subject to domestic violence). In terms of the plot, the stories of Lady Pevensey’s and Nelly’s marriages resonate with and add nuance to the reader’s understanding of the primary love triangle between Ethelinde, Sir Edward and Lady Newenden. The dark imagery in Mrs Montgomery’s backstory (which is crucially reported by Mrs Montgomery, not the narrator, thus sidestepping the narrator’s power to influence the reader in favour of Ethelinde), and the tragic ends of the three women described, disrupt the narrator’s endorsement of the relationship between Sir Edward and Ethelinde, implicitly questioning the desirability of Ethelinde’s sensibility.

Notably the narrator attempts to protect Ethelinde by refusing to remind the reader of the picture’s import, but has no power to alter Montgomery’s unfortunate (from the narrator’s perspective) choice of words, which are a fact of the story. This chapter has demonstrated how the eighteenth-century theory of sensibility is powerfully implicated in questions of health in Ethelinde. Moreover, the text implicitly critiques the equation of sensibility with altruism. Genuine sensibility – and the capacity to empathize with others it potentially generates – can be used in the service of self rather than others; paradoxically, the very empathy which defines it is implicated in unfeeling behaviour exerted for self-gain.
