in consequence of the missive, Chapter 4. Lizzy - what is she thinking?, penned by mikeB in Japan
Does the fact that the Bennett girls are referred to by nickname more frequently reveal an additional indication of their social class? Does the fact that Lizzie gets described alternatively as "Elizabeth" in different settings such as the greater parts of Chapter 3&4 portray her acumen in dealing varying social circles? Does the fact that the men are mentioned by only last name indicative of their social class, monies or was it common at that time to do so?
