in consequence of the missive, Here's some more views....., penned by JulieW
What an amazing image, Julie, thanks for posting this. It gives the wintry mood very well. Joan Hassell's woodcut illustration shows just how treacherous those steps are, and displays the drama -- just awful. No railing and to jump down from them seems not a very good idea at all! Which ones did JA have in mind? Were they both the same kind?
I can't properly recall the description of the Harville's cottage just now, but from memory it sounded similar to the ones in the photo. Was it like this, right near the spray and the water on the Cobb? Or have I got it totally wrong?
Lyme is certainly fascinating and the mood JA creates is pretty interesting. This passage stood out for some reason, is it just because it was off season and there was not much lighting in that area, that the ladies did not go out?
Ch. 11 "The nights were too dark for the ladies to meet again till the morrow, but Captain Harville had promised them a visit in the evening; and he came, bringing his friend also, which was more than had been expected..."
As always, these posts are invaluable in seeing more of the novel, as there is always more to a JA novel, I am finding yet again!!!;-)
