Isannah Lapham speaks these words in
Chapter III, driving Johnny to the lowest point of his despair.
Because of his handicap, Johnny is now unemployed and broke. Once
Isannah expresses her disgust toward his disfigurement, Johnny also
feels that he does not have any friends or loved ones. Isannah’s
statement is a catalyst for a series of events that affect the rest
of Johnny’s life. Because of her words, Johnny feels he has no other
recourse than to approach Lyte with the silver cup, which leads
to his arrest and his relationship with Rab and the Lornes. Isannah’s
exclamation also reveals her true character. Johnny has just given
Isannah a gift, then tried to hug and kiss her, when she makes this
outburst. Her response to Johnny’s affection and kindness reveals
Isannah’s selfishness and lack of sensitivity toward others and
her inability to consider anyone’s feelings but her own. These words
foreshadow Isannah’s choice of a life of luxury over a life with
her loved ones, when she decides to join the Lytes and move to London.
