|Plot Summary of The Magnificent Ambersons|
|"George Amberson Minafer is used to getting everything he wants. Spoiled terribly by mother Isabel, young George is only concerned with his own appearance and having a relationship with Lucy Morgan, a young though sensible debutant. The Minafers continue to befriend the Morgans, although gossip around the town suggests that Isabel and Lucy's father are intimate. Always vain, he sabotages his widowed mother's growing affections for Lucy's father, and in turn loses all those dear to him."
Angela Allan, Resident Scholar
