Rupert: Gudrun Brangwen. Gerald Crich. Tibby and Laura Lupton. Ursula Brangwen. Rupert Birkin. What peculiar names we all have. Do you think we’ve been singled out. . .chosen for some extraordinary moment in life or are we all cursed with the mark of Cain?
Ursula: I’m afraid Ursula was a martyred saint. It’s been rather difficult to live up to.
Gerald: And who is Gudrun?
Gudrun: In Norse myth, Gudrun was a sinner who murdered her husband.
Gerald: Will you live up to that?
Gudrun: Which would you prefer me to live up to, the sinner or the murderer?
