in consequence of the missive, Suppose we agree to disagree., penned by Felicity
And I too have always read the little conversation between Emma and Mr. Woodhouse in Chapter 32 as satire. Emma is teasing her father, but he simply does not get the joke. This just goes to emphasize the point that when Miss Taylor married, she has lost all intellectual equals in her house. [Her father] could not meet her in conversation, rational or playful. Ch. 1. I always feel a little sorry for Emma at this moment. She is trying to treat her father as she would Miss Taylor or even, Mr. Knightley, but she ismply can't succeed, and she knows she can't succeed.
