|Sir Thomas' Return
Written by Carol

How full this scene is! The horror of the Bertram siblings versus the happiness of Lady Bertram "who was really extremely happy to see him, and whose feelings were so warmed by his sudden arrival as to place her nearer agitation than she had been for the last twenty years.". Fanny's dread replaced by tender feelings when shown kindness by Sir Thomas. Mrs. Norris' disappointment at not having the role of town crier manifesting itself in pompous interruptions. And overlying it all, Sir Thomas' real joy at being home. This is the most emotion we've seen from him in the whole book!
