in consequence of the missive, why was he "eavesdropping" on Lizzy?, penned by mikeB in Japan
The long and short of using eavesdropping to describe Darcy’s scoping-out Lizzy’s conversations with others instead of ‘attended to her conversation’ (6) was simply less typing. (:D) I LOL ‘Never demand that the King act as a commoner’ and feel the aptness of it regarding Darcy’s state of mind. So then how does following his inclinations at Lucas Lodge astonish? It seems predictable. It did not suit Darcy to dance with Lizzy at the assembly so he did not. At Lucas Lodge it suits Darcy to dance with Lizzy so he acquiesces to the idea. I think Darcy is civil enough to avoid censure and praise. It is an improvement on his performance at the assembly I grant you. His manners are tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt Lizzy or me into particular gratitude. (:D)
