I noticed a few grammatical mistakes. One, it's entirely unfashionable to start sentences with "and" and "but" as well I noticed some awkward moments in sentence structure such as "her far too long a gown." The "a" in the sentence is entirely unnecessary and breaks up the sentence flow.
Also, in the sentence "... inevitable tedium which had been bestowed upon her..." requires a comma before the "which" because it's a non-restrictive clause.
Another bit is the listing of literary devices (dynamic, symbolic, minor characters) without any real explanation to why you're listing them other than the character may or may not fit into them. It feels a little gaggy/pretentious. It's in a similar vein to if I randomly started discussing TV Tropes on my character profile and other useless bits of information.
"It was not the freckles which dotted her face and body to keep her skin from holding a flawless complexion. And it was not the dirt hidden from under her nails which had been cleaned out hundreds of times, only to see it returned the next day."
Again with writing flow, breaking up these two sentences makes the read extremely awkward and fragmented. The physical description in general has a very awkward flow and I would consider some revision and better transitions.
Otherwise, interesting read!
