|Quite like Jane!

Hippolita reminds me a lot of Jane, Jane Bennet that is. Consider this statement by the princess: "Manfred, in the agony for the loss of thy brother, knew not what he said; perhaps Isabella misunderstood him: his heart is good—and, my child, thou knowest not all."
Also Jane's rather giving up on ever having Mr. Bingley's affections reminds me of the way Hippolita was ready to give up Manfred and concent to a divorce for the sake of his happiness. That heaven that Ms. Austen didn't make Bingley such an oddious character as Manfred! I hope someone takes care of him soon, and perhaps Hippolita will be able to have a husband she deserves like say, Frederic? :-)
