But realistically she should have taken the money and run, and would have, I think, given the era and her circumstances. Her pride was a little too modern for that time, frankly. I think it's just the opposite: it's nowadays when money is the most important thing. To Peggy, the story is a part of herself. Selling it in an disfigured form would mean debasing herself. If she is a real artist, she knows in her heart that her time will come - if not earlier, then after her death. Besides, this was just the age when (some) people who themselves (or their ancestors) had been down had ideals and stuck to them.
