Mademoiselle Reisz

Character Analysis

A pianist of extraordinary skill, Mademoiselle Reisz is an odd duck in society due to her homely and unfashionable appearance, as well as her lack of a husband. She is most responsible for Edna’s artistic development. By sharing the letters she receives from Robert with Edna, she is also responsible for keeping Edna’s love for Robert alive.
