in consequence of the missive, A couple of focuses, penned by Nicki
In the opening chapters, Edmund really does seem to be a "big brother" to Fanny. Certainly, Lord Bertram should have no fear of any romance developing...I find it extremely touching, the manner in which Edmund strives to see that Fanny is cared for.
Edmund's arguments for Fanny, going to live with Mrs. Norris following the death of her husband, were thin. Fanny's thoughts and opinions on this subject illustrate that she may be a better judge of character than Edmund. Also, while she loves Edmund as much as her brother William, she doesn't necessarily always agree with him. She keeps her opinions to herself, because she quietly chooses not to be in conflict with those around her.
Does that make her a hopeless doormat or the wisest person at Mansfield Park?
