in consequence of the missive, Chapter 3. Mrs. B is a wit -- who knew, penned by mikeB in Japan
Was she awake/conscious when she said it, then yes. :-) If you mean, Was she aware she was being funny/ridiculous/stupid, then no.
The narrator describes Mrs Bennet (end of Chap 1) as "a woman of mean understanding, little information, and uncertain temper." She not only doesn't understand her husband of 23 years, she doesn't realize that she is inconsistent & silly.
That is one of my fave Mrs Bennet lines, btw. Thanks for highlighting it.
