So, it goes:
"It is not all shame at telling lies—which
he knows will not be believed—that makes him
turn so red when he informs you that he considers
greatcoats unhealthy, and never carries an
umbrella on principle."
Am I to understand that what is NOT a shame are the things he lists? Because, in previous sentences he says something like poverty itself not being a problem, but the fact that it might be known by others that makes it a shame. I'm very confused here.
ı can provide more context if needed.
It is not all shame at telling lies that makes him turn so red. It is also shame at others knowing that he is poor. It doesn't mention anything that is NOT a shame - only something that is not [a shame at telling lies].
