lack of deep and thoughtful conversations between Regency characters. They hardly seem to know each other. I understand that manners are ruled by societal custom, but one would hope that in intimate 'social' situations one could speak ones' heart.
I often felt LR did Anne an injustice in persuading her to break it off with FW. Then, upon reflection and reading posts about the real evils that could fall on Anne, I was swayed to thinking LR was correct. Back and forth I go!
But, Anne never opens up. She keeps her feelings to herself. How can anyone give an opinion that is more than superficial, when they are working in the dark?
One of these days, I hope to do a comparison of/on(?) the lack of social intimacy in JA's novels, between family members and close friends. By social intimacy, I mean revealing ones' true feelings and thoughts.
