Character Role Analysis
Mrs. Walker is one stone cold mean girl. From the scene she pulls at the Pincio, crashing Daisy's date and insisting she get into her carriage, to the snub she delivers to Daisy at her party by turning her back to her as she leaves, we can't stand Mrs. Walker's high and mighty antics. It's also clear that La Walker is behind all of the other society gossip and ostracism that Daisy begins to experience before her death.
