in consequence of the missive, "Gothic" Eleanor & JA's defence of the novel, penned by Delories
]Eleanor shows that the "Gothic" elements in her charecter, tastes and situation are also compatible with a fully-rounded, flesh-and-blood charecter.
That is exactly what I tried to convey in my description of ET.
I agree this could well be one of the best possible defences of the novel- we are being entertained by 'real' people despite gothic shadings.
It's a rather sweeping statement at the bottom but I couldn't resist it as critics don't appear to see Elanor as a person with her own views and ideas but more as a female echo of Henry.
(not Henry's fault !)
