"old money" vs "new money" with the added distaste that the Warleggans are "trade". I'm aware of the class distinction between the Poldarks and the Warleggans. I simply wonder why Graham would portray the "old money" types as simply annoying, while the "new money" types like the Warleggans as out and out villains. They were all a pretty lousy bunch. Why not portray the landed gentry or aristocrats as out and out villains? They were just as ruthless - in their own way - about securing wealth as the "self made" types. Quote There are many reasons to despise George, least of all that he's successful and self made and has bettered his lot in life. Are we automatically supposed to despise George and his family, because they're self made, unlike the Poldarks? Edited December 21, 2016 by CTrent29 Link to comment
