in consequence of the missive, GR: Thoughts from chapter 2, penned by Kim in AK
]I was struck by just HOW inappropriate and un-gentlemanlike Darcy's first proposal really was.
It's nice to see you here, and I don't mind reviewing the chapters at all. There was a lot of information that needs to become more fixed in my brain. :-)
I am especially interested in reading how bits of this book can be tied in with JA's novels, so am pleased to see you make a connection between Darcy's proposal (who definitely did not "diffidently stress his own unworthiness" - LOL), and how courtships actually played out. I don't recall* one proposal in this particular book that sprung out of nowhere, so am wondering how often these unexpected proposals (like in P&P) occurred.
*Note, I have a terrible memory, so feel free to correct my recollection. :-)
