|silent indignation at such a mode of passing the evening

in consequence of the missive, Darcy, Lizzy and conversation, penned by Nina RG
Why think Darcy would not wish to speak to Elizabeth when later moments show him quite up for verbal sparring? Any of HER conversation would underline her capabilities in that direction rather quickly, too. Darcy does not strike me as someone who takes a 'you are severe upon us,' an arch look, and a momentary interruption as mortifying. He would not even consider those as obstacles - he thinks too well of himself, and is already learning Elizabeth's ways enough to know this is her modus operandi. Had he wanted to converse with Elizabeth, he should have.
Author Austen is not shy about telling us when Darcy IS motivated by interest in Elizabeth, and she has already told us that Darcy takes pains to accent his dislike of dancing and aver his preference of intelligent talk.
