There are four major characters in Alexander pope's rape of the lock.here the brief notes about them...
Belinda:The poetic name of Arabella Fermor, an upper-class English girl. She is a beautiful young woman and vain of her appearance. Although she is a sweet society girl who loves her spaniel and is normally quite agreeable, she flies into a horrid rage when Lord Petre snips off one of her treasured curls.
Lord Petre:A young nobleman, one of Belinda’s suitors. He admires Belinda so much that he wants one of her curls as a keepsake and snips it off at a party when she bends her head over a cup. He refuses to return the curl, and it disappears to become a star.
Spleen:The queen of bad tempers and the source of detestable qualities in human beings. She supplies Umbriel with magic substances.
Betty: Belinda’s maid.
