in consequence of the missive, Still not convinced! ;-), penned by Line
"However, if JA was such a lousy conversationalist herself, why did she regularly complain in her letters to Cassandra about the dullness of the company *and the conversation* at the parties she went to?"
Did you not see how Darcy liked brilliant, sparkling conversation and went about getting it by listening to Elizabeth, rather than engaging her himself? Maybe Author Austen was sketching her own failures in company?
(I have not finished reading the articles on that site - very interesting so far, though!)
