There are, of course, so MANY wonderful descriptive phrases throughout JA's work, that I could spend all day and not get them all. In this week's chapters though, I took note of a few to share:
Chapter 19 -- Sir W and Elizabeth engaged in the elegant stupidity of private parties Chapter 20 -- Sir W and Elizabeth meeting Lady D at the concert with all the eagerness compatible with anxious elegance Chapter 22 -- Elizabeth, pretending with affected carelessness she doesn't care about inviting Mr. E and Mrs. Clay being coy in convenient silence Chapter 24 -- Sir W and Elizabeth living in a state of half enjoyment because they would have to do the flattering instead of being flattered, after Mrs. Clay left.
It's such a joy to read JA! Anyone else have some?
