Gertud stands somewhere in the murky middle of the spectrum between characters on this list who adapt and thrive and those who obstinately and self-destructively cling to the professions, ideas, and illusions of their youth. Dreyer's heroine borders on the self-destructive in the way she refuses to settle for love or lovers who fail to meet her unattainable ideals. But in her preference for loneliness and suffering over compromise there is a glimmer--isn't there?--of something deeply profound. All our earthly loves, even the highest ones, are but weak shadows of a deeper, stronger, higher love that our souls tell us must exist somewhere. -- Kenneth R. Morefield
