I don't have good observations about Elizabeth's "give my love to Lady Russell, even if I think she looked wretched the other night,and the books she keeps lending me annoy me...but give her my love" speech in chapter 22 other than cracked me up.
"I have nothing to send but my love. Oh! you may as well take back that tiresome book she would lend me, and pretend I have read it through. I really cannot be plaguing myself for ever with all the new poems and states of the nation that come out. Lady Russell quite bores one with her new publications. You need not tell her so, but I thought her dress hideous the other night. I used to think she had some taste in dress, but I was ashamed of her at the concert. Something so formal and arrangé in her air! and she sits so upright! My best love, of course."
I mean... who SAYS these things out loud!?
Just thought I'd share my amusement.
