Character Role Analysis

Nathaniel Benson

Nathaniel Benson is that swoon-worthy young painter whom Matilda has a huge crush on. Note, though, that while Matilda and Nathaniel do presumably end up together, their courtship is not the main focus of the story. Matilda's romantic interest in Nathaniel is only a small part of a much larger tale.
