in consequence of the missive, A bit too harsh on Emma, perhaps, penned by Ramya
Now I think you're being a *little* too hard on Mr. Woodhouse! Although we are clearly told that he has "habits of gentle selfishness", as long as nothing interferes with his well-ordered life, he does actually want those around him to be happy, and above all, healthy. I agree that he is decidedly self-centered, but IMO he also suffers from a lack of imagination. It's one of the reasons why he is no conversational partner for Emma.
