in consequence of the missive, Looking white or red, penned by Robbin
I've sifted through different possibilities over the years of which was which and why and have a tendency to change constantly never having settled on anything for sure. Last night when I was reading chapter 34 I came across this: His complexion became pale with anger, and the disturbance of his mind was visible in every feature. He was struggling for the appearance of composure, and would not open his lips till he believed himself to have attained it. I had just, during this group read, kind of settled on the fact that 'white' meant fear/wariness and then, when I read the above quote, I felt that I was back at square one again because 'pale' (white) is being associated with anger in this context. (If anything, white/pale comes off as more superior than choosing to turn red with anger---rather Darcy-ish of Darcy to choose pale I would think, lol) But, of course, it doesn't mean that white couldn't be fear in the one context and anger in the other but....brainscramble! Still, either way, the analysis is really great and worthwhile in itself because it brought out points I had never thought to consider so thank you. :)
