In analyzing those factors, the writer uses data from
Romola which is supported by literary theory of characterisation,
some criticism of the author and his novel, and theory
of human relationship and personality.

decision to take care of her husband's mistress and children,
the writer finds out because of Savoranola's advice and the
condition of the poor and the villagers, Romola realizes that
her life is meaningful by helping people from their suffering.
This supports her to forgive her husband and to care for
his mistress and children. Moreover, since she knows that
she has the ability to do something worthy in her life, she
is confident to make the decision.
