I'm very glad to be spared Austen's wit. I am sure I would never measure up. I never put down my knitting for guests and I tend to not mind anyone who doesn't mind me. My greatest fear is that I either resemble Miss Bates or Mary Musgrove.
LD may be one of those examples of things in this novel that I am not sure I can agree with. Anne is so very fastidious in her taste. But it is an ecclectic taste. She likes Mrs. Smith who does not appear to be a great wit or have much in the way of conversation. Anne appears to apply her good opininon where she likes and she is generally correct about people ... but that only makes it a bit more irritating. So what if the Darymple family is a group of nobodies in Anne's mind. They are people and they are her family.
The narrator is even more ecclectic and fastidious. I'm not sure what this all adds up to.
