in consequence of the missive, I am not sure I understand you, penned by Rae
your interpretation of Emma’s charitable spirit is very rational, humane and inspiring but while I see what you are saying, I think this is a passage that does multiple duties which I think is shown by how it can be used to reflect Emma’s feelings about both Harriet and Mr. Martin. I also think “had no romantic expectations of extraordinary virtue from those, is a conclusion based on the fact for whom education had done so little” and therefore is something that Emma believes about the poor--an opinon or view. Is there a reason it cannot be interpreted this way that I am just not getting? (;D)
