|Listening To Miss Bates

This is the first time I have ever listened to an audio version of Emma. I have discovered that listening to Miss Bates entire speeches is quite different from watching them in a movie or skimming them while reading. She is amusing in movies, where her lines are cut very short. She is interesting in the book where you can search her speeches for clues of what is really going on. But trapped in a car listening to her going on and on she is getting on my last nerve. I am afraid I am going to have to forgive Emma for her neglect of Miss Bates. Several times now I have just hit the skip button on my CD player and shut poor Miss Bates up. I really can't stand to listen to her anymore. So I have a great deal more sympathy for Emma's refusal to visit her.
