in consequence of the missive, A woman of spirit., penned by Rachel G
I hadn't thought of her striving to win the game in that scene as a metaphor for her attempt to dissuade Edmund from the clergy, but it does makes sense. I have thought that she sees relationships as a power struggle so I agree with the competitive element.
I wanted to add, I've always thought that "No cold prudence for me. I am not born to sit still and do nothing" was a direct dig at Edmund.
It directly relates to what she said in ch. 11
One of the things I've always thought was telling about her character in ch.25 is this
She doesn't dare ridicule Sir Thomas. However despite what she said back at Sotherton, “If I had known this before, I would have spoken of the cloth with more respect,”, she has been ridiculing Edmund ever since she found out. This ridicule shows such an extreme lack of respect for someone she's considering as a partner(or competitor) in life and is a very bad sign for their future. This is mean spirited-ness that I really dislike.
