in consequence of the missive, I don't see it in the same light somehow., penned by Helen Kaye
But I don't see that he makes much of an effort to overcome them. He gets points for actually recognizing a worthwhile person in Jane, but the narrative makes it clear that in some ways he still sees her as an inferior. This was part of the reason that Mrs. Fairfax told Jane to keep him at arm's length, and part of the reason Jane was so uncomfortable with him showering her with jewels and fine clothes. This class awareness was the cultural norm but it was still a fault he had to overcome before their marriage would really work. For all we know it may have after all, but I got the impression that even without the mad wife, there still were more issues at stake, particularly with regards to class.
I hope that made sense. My mind was all over the board when trying to write this. XD
