Stephen Whyte’s solemn nature and delicate sensibility alienates him from what he sees as the malaise of the crude sensibility and coarse, frivolous life of his community. His search for a means to remedy that malaise, and thereby end his isolation and take a place in the community appropriate to his ‘higher’ sensibility, leads him to a course of action that risks his entire future and well-being.
