in consequence of the missive, can Isabella mean what she says?, penned by Ra
Isabella goes so over-the-top, it's difficult to take her seriously! All of her language in relation to love is dramatic. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Jane Austen was using her to mock gothic heroines, by having her steal their notions. In which case, I don't think we can possibly believe her noisy protestations.
It seemed to me that at that stage of the novel (the first seven chapters) Catherine didn't really know her own intentions. She's quite open in general, though, so I'm sure she wouldn't hide her feelings once she has them.
