Mrs. Sparsit is Bounderby’s housemaid. Originally from an aristocratic family, Mrs. Sparsit is forced into service when her spendthrift husband burns his way through their life savings. Despite her somewhat desperate position, Mrs. Sparsit continues to view herself as a lady as the rest of society as beneath her. Mrs. Sparsit takes particular pleasure in imagining Louisa Bounderby’s demise. I think she is a static character.
