in consequence of the missive, I think the romantic ideals she criticizes in S&S..., penned by Connie
..."almost dying" was a consequence of the Romantic wrong, but the wrong was throwing herself at a man she didn't know because of physical attraction and his smooth address. The illness was a more notable event, but even if she hadn't been such a ridiculously overzealous Romantic, she still would have ended in poverty without the fabulous luck of attracting Brandon's attention.
There was also Edward, who lost his birthright and would have lost Elinor because of his Romantic diversion, except for the luck of Lucy latching onto his brother when he got Edward's birthright.
And, of course, there was Brandon, who got caught in the Romantic trap early in life, though since he was a rich male, only his rectitude brought unhappiness to his life.
You have convinced me that Lizzy had more reason than I previously believed for her reaction; I hadn't considered her life with her parents.
