in consequence of the missive, Emma's Dislike of the Bates Family [Long], penned by BarbaraB
with your assessment and you wrote it beautifully. It expresses what I, too, see about the two younger women and Miss Bates. Jane Fairfax lost both parents at a younger age than Emma lost one parent, and did not have the advantage of 30k pounds waiting for her, and if she were of a more retiring nature to begin with, this may have clinched it. I expecially liked your observations on Emma's obsession with looks and how it relates to her treatment of people -- a female Mr Elliott in the making perhaps?
