|Would Catherine catch the meaning of Thorpe's taste?

in consequence of the missive, JA's novel apologetic and the Thorpes, penned by TimLee
It reflects badly on John Thorpe that, as Rachel G says, the only two novels he says he likes are the bawdy "Tom Jones" and the nasty (yes, I've read it, there's some really yucky stuff in there!) "The Monk".
However, I think that Catherine might not be able to pick up on that, since I am sure that she would have read neither of them -- not the sort of thing that a clergyman would allow into his house. Still, she might be aware of their scandalous reputation, even if she hadn't read them...
