Sir Godwin Lydgate

Character Analysis

Sir Godwin is Lydgate's wealthy uncle. After Lydgate's parents died, Lydgate was raised in part by his uncle Godwin. His family never approved of his choice of profession because they considered being a doctor to be "lower" than becoming a soldier, lawyer, or clergyman. Sir Godwin is still Lydgate's favorite uncle, even though he refuses to lend them money when Rosamond asks for a loan.
