in consequence of the missive, Readerís knowledge vs. Lizzyís: The Lucases, penned by amytat
..little different than the Bennets in wanting the best for their daughters. A very natural trait in that era and not an unusual one even today. Mrs Bennet was totally scathing about them, and acted very unchariatably at Charlotte's news. Granted, seeing Charlotte as a future owner of Longbourne was a hard pill to swallow, but hardly the fault of the Lucas family. Charlotte was indeed shrewd in accepting Mr Collins, but she was also smart enough to know Lizzie never would so she just put her own horse in the race.
I doubt we were meant to concentrate too much on the Lucas's as J.A has her own plans for how it will all turn out, no doubt, but I don't see them as acting wrongly in any way. Sir William seems a bumbling but good natured enough fellow, Maria is harmless and as for Lady Lucas, we have but Mrs Bennet's views. Not the best recommendation really.
