Character Role Analysis
Dr. Flint, Mrs. Flint, the South
Dr. Flint rains his reign of terror on Linda for most of her life. He's a cruel, brutal man without a shred of sympathy. But he's only one of many. Mrs. Flint is almost as bad, and the whole South seems to be constantly trying to drag Linda back into slavery.
