in consequence of the missive, In 4 chapters we see an almost faultless & superior heroine, penned by jeffrey
I agree that Anne is a superior heroine, and that she had suffered under others so much her inferior in character -- e.g. "the partialities and injustice of her father's house (chap 4). But I fear that the tendency of some views to perhaps over emphasize this aspect might turn Anne into a rather pathetic person, and I would disagree with that. Anne is after all a capable character; she is also described as elegant, cultivated; and while she is not valued by her father and elder sister, she is valued by Lady Russell, and respected by the Musgorves.I ndeed, at Uppercross, she was "being treated with too much confidence by all parties" (chap 6), becasue each of them had such a high opinion of her ability to set matters right!
