The anemic Mabel Applegarth is transformed into a Ruth Morse who is beautiful and proud and harries Martin Eden because he is not respectably employed. Jack broke with Mabel because she could not get free from her dominant mother. Money was not the problem. Ruth breaks her engagement when Martin is reported in the press as having made a flaming socialist speech (falsely, for it was a Nietzschean attack on socialism). Bessie Maddern does not appear in the book. And Ruth evolves somewhat. Late in the story she offers to become Martin's mistress so that she can convince him of her sincerity and persuade him to marry her.
