in consequence of the missive, I didn't say Mr Knightley should have said these things, penned by Kathleen Glancy
Depending on what one might consider Emma's faults, I have made these following observations;
-Match making itself is not being considered a fault, unless Mr and Mrs Weston share this fault. While the Westons only hoped for the match in their head, Emma was forcing it.
-narrating her fantasy about Jane Fairfax and Mr Dixon to Frank Churchill was wrong.
-her opinion about the people from the lower class has undergone a change (half way as I mentioned).
She has 'ultimately' been influenced by the fact that the Westons and Mr Knightley are going so it cannot be wrong, though earlier she had no hope, from them.
This step may lead to socializing more, and changing her attitude. It's this non socializing (and I don't mean visits to Miss Bates) which is the root cause of her narrow view IMO
-a change towards Miss Bates.
So her reaction here is extraordinary, and I see a complete reform regarding Miss Bates.
I'm not inclined to see anymore faults, so I'm quite satisfied with her progress.
