in consequence of the missive, Darcy and conversation, penned by gianni
He does join the conversation when Bingley is receiving Mrs. Bennett, to notice the confined circles in the country, and to question Elizabeth's assertion that poetry destroyed an admirer's affection for Jane. He asks Elizabeth if she has a desire to dance a reel. But for the most part you are correct, and even these examples show that it might be his inability to resist Elizabeth's verbal play that induces him to try. He also speaks slightingly of the Bennett's girls chances of marrying unasked. I wonder if the letter to his sister is only in answer to one she sent him? *chuckles*
And, yet, he speaks well, when he gives himself the trouble. He likes to contradict, but so does Elizabeth.
Maybe his reticence is how he got roped into the Meryton Ball. Bingley: "Any in favour of not going to the Ball, speak now! No one? Then, go we all shall!" while Darcy is fuming at Bingley's attempt to make him talk!
