in consequence of the missive, Maybe shyness is a family trait, penned by Anne-Marie
Darcy was certainly not shy about putting Caroline in her place when she tried running Lizzy down in front of Georgiana by recalling his "as soon call her mother a wit" comment. He was not shy about setting off to scour London for Wickham and Lydia or in arranging to help anonymously."But our visitor was very obstinate. I fancy, Lizzy, that obstinacy is the real defect of his character after all. ... Nothing was to be done that he did not do himself....
"They battled it together for a long time, which was more than either the gentleman or lady concerned in it deserved. But at last your uncle was forced to yield...." (Ch. 52)
I know many people like the "shy Darcy" theory, but I do not see it.
