in consequence of the missive, I side with you on many points..., penned by Benedicte
Re no.2: May I please point out that shyness and introversion are *not* the same thing, and being an introvert has nothing to do with how articulate a person is (though shyness certainly may!). I agree that Darcy is an introvert, though not that he is shy at this point in his life.
As you may have guessed, I fundamentally disagree with you on points 1,2, and 4, :-) but sort of agree on no.3 (we just don't have enough proof either way). I definitely agree on no. 5. The Bingley of the book is a lot more intelligent and able to think for himself than his doubles in P&P2 (even though Crispin Bonham-Carter's is in other ways my favourite film Bingley), and especially the IMNSHO awful Bingley of P&P3. As a fan of Mr. Bennet, can you tell me more about which post you're referring to in no.6? I tried to find it by number but couldn't.
I'll have to look up your references :-), but for the time being, I have to say that to me, the authority of the Omniscient Narrator *is* absolute, although I certainly agree that she doesn't tell all she knows. Could you point out any references from the book where she doesn't tell the truth? Thanks for going to the trouble of listing everything!
