Ross Poldark (Poldark, #1) Ross Poldark question

Did he love Elizabeth or just want to get back at poldark? I've only been watching the current bbc series.

George loved Elizabeth from the time they were young, but she had always seemed unattainable to him. Marrying her was the proof he needed that he really had risen above his family's working class background and become a "gentleman."

Good question! We've got lots more discussion over in the Poldark Saga Group!

According to the book he loves Elizabeth very much. It's probably the only selfless emotion he has.

Agreed that George loved Elizabeth, but it was more for her ancient name and grace as a gentlewoman than for herself. In addition, George is particularly gratified that gaining Elizabeth really hurts Ross.
