in consequence of the missive, Chapters 20 and 34 in particular..., penned by gianni
I don’t see Emma beating up Jane or not sharing her dolls and toys. Emma has a very cheerful nature, and Jane likes mischievous and liveliness in a person.
Here Jane’s thoughts would be useful. Did she feel superior as a ‘city’ girl during her visits? Did she feel envious too of Emma’s situation in life, while growing up?
The bolded letters are all Emma's thoughts, and seem to me like expressing resentment or regrets about things of adulthood.
Emma judges herself very severely and with some exaggeration which is typical of her, like those moments where she tends towards saying “..all my life” quite often, whether it was blushing over a misdeed, feeling ashamed etc or even thinking it a sin to *think* of marrying.
Again Jane’s thoughts at this juncture would be very useful in knowing the exact weight of Emma’s IMO.
