Puzzling to me that is: Ch 31
"My fingers," said Elizabeth, "do not move over this instrument in the masterly manner which I see so many women's do. They have not the same force or rapidity, and do not produce the same expression. But then I have always supposed it to be my own faultóbecause I will not take the trouble of practising. It is not that I do not believe my fingers as capable as any other woman's of superior execution."
What does Darcy mean? That Lizzy is indeed at fault for not practising hard enough? Or that she is so good that she does not need to practise and thus can busy herself with other things? That is a bit over the top isnít it? And what has that got to do with not performing to strangers?
Ok this is confusing!
