in consequence of the missive, Ch 1: A mature Miss Austen already struts out her sense of humor, penned by jeffrey
Amazing how four words says and implies so much. It is who she is and yet so who she is not. From her family's point of view and her response to her home environment and the years of feeling exceedingly the rupture of her engagement, she is a shadow, quietly blending into the rooms and furniture, only Anne, barely Anne, and yet as we listen to her few words, and the descriptions of her, watch her actions, something different unfolds. She is, in fact, the most observant, reflective, sensible to the feelings of others, conscientious... She is the moral fiber against whom we consciously or unconsciously begin to measure the other characters in the story. Hardly only Anne.
