Mrs. Elton is not a really likable person but as a character there is flair about her that can make her entertaining at times. Her outrageous vulgarity is something to behold. But I couldn't help but read her intrusive personality with a bit of a smirk as I watched Emma getting a taste of her own medicine. Mrs. Elton is an exaggerated Emma! Let's see:
* They each want to be first and foremost. Mrs. Elton gets temporary privilege of the entitlement as a bride but technically Emma is holder of the position if she can manage to wrestle it away from Mrs. Elton who appears to want permanent ownership of it. LOL.
It is interesting to see how Emma really can redirect a conversation when it is in her own interests: "And then, to prevent further outrage and indignation, changed the subject directly: 'I do not ask whether you are musical, Mrs. Elton.'" Now this is what I was looking for when she was unhappy with the way the conversation was going with Jane. Here, she is being a gracious host and under more adverse conditions and which are not even of her own making. Jane is probably looking pretty good about now.
