in consequence of the missive, Jane & Frank, penned by Frances G
My original focus in this group read was on shifting identities and social standings, and viewed from that perspective, a Jane-Frank match makes sense. Both have been reared away from their birth families and have grown up with more money and advantages than they might otherwise have done. Imagine what a sad, impoverished life Jane would have had if not for the Campbells, who even though they could not provide for a dowry, were able to educate her and show her more of the world than she would have seen while living with Mrs. and Miss Bates. Frank might have fared all right with Mr. Weston, but I wonder whether Mr. Weston might have remarried earlier if he had a young son to rear on his own.
