in consequence of the missive, The Art and Nature of Lizzy and Darcy (Long), penned by BarbaraB
I can very well fancy Rosings as art, Longbourn as nature and Pemberley a happy mixture of both... and this even though Longbourn is not described but for the "prettyish kind of wilderness". There is so much hustle and bustle there, with 6 girls continuously arguing or busying themselves with some piece of handiwork (so I fancy them) that I can't picture it as tidy and orderly. Moreover scenes at Longbourn are often associated with the words "confusion", "cry", "fly"(especially when Lydia is about) except when Jane and Elizabeth are on their own.
Rosings is associated with terms such as "grandeur", "fine proportion and finished ornaments".
Where would Netherfield the 4th house of the novel stand?
