Daintily lifting the tails of her skirt, she said, How do I look, Georgie? Shall I set a new fashion with this gown, or is it too outré? none, to hear an out-and-outer like Lady Winbourne ask for fashion advice from a spinster of fifty-odd years who had not had a new gown made up for herself in a decade. Lady Georgiana Eden’s lean body was encased in an exceedingly plain blue sarsenet gown, and her gray hair was tightly bound under an aging silk cap with lace lappets.

The damsel-in-distress, persecuted maiden, or princess in jeopardy is a classic theme in world literature, art, film and video games; most notably in those that have a lot of action. This trope usually involves beautiful, innocent, or helpless young female leads, placed in a dire predicament by a villain, monster or alien, and who requires a male hero to achieve her rescue. Often these young women are stereotyped as very physically weak and almost completely dependent on the male lead.
A damsel in distress. by Pelham Grenville Wodehouse. CHAPTER 1. Inasmuch as the scene of this story is that historic pile, BelpherCastle, in the county of Hampshire, it would be an agreeable taskto open it with a leisurely description of the place, followed bysome notes on the history of the Earls of Marshmoreton, who haveowned it since the fifteenth century. Unfortunately, in these daysof rush and hurry, a novelist works at a disadvantage. He mustleap into the middle of his tale with as little delay as he wouldemploy in boarding a moving tramcar.
