in consequence of the missive, Edmund- no ordinary hero, penned by Barb JA
I feel just that way about Edmund in Chapter 11. He spends almost the entire chapter arguing with Mary's unreasonable, narrow-minded and fashionable views on the clergy, and then as soon as the conversation is disrupted:
'Fanny turned farther into the window; and Miss Crawford had only time to say, in a pleasant manner, “I fancy Miss Price has been more used to deserve praise than to hear it”; when, being earnestly invited by the Miss Bertrams to join in a glee, she tripped off to the instrument, leaving Edmund looking after her in an ecstasy of admiration of all her many virtues, from her obliging manners down to her light and graceful tread.
“There goes good–humour, I am sure,” said he presently. “There goes a temper which would never give pain! How well she walks! and how readily she falls in with the inclination of others! joining them the moment she is asked. What a pity,” he added, after an instant’s reflection, “that she should have been in such hands!”'
