Plot Summary:

study of Fatalism. Two Dutchmen and the English girl, whom one of them loves, are the chief characters. The poorer, an emasculate creature, sponges on his wealthy friend, and when he fears he will lose his support by his friend's marriage, he yields to the impulse to estrange the lovers.

 The state of mind of a man who would fain impute his crimes to Fate or to the innate defects of character is depicted with much force and with knowledge of moral pathology. As omens and presages have hinted from the beginning, the story ends in tragedy for all. Heinemann
