in consequence of the missive, Weighing the evidence so far, penned by Kathi
Last week it was noted that Mrs Bennet and Caroline Bingley have issues with constancy: they assert something and the next minute claim to believe something completely different. I believe Wickham is the same way:
"What sort of girl is Miss Darcy?"
He shook his head.--"I wish I could call her amiable. It gives me pain to speak ill of a Darcy..."
Hasn't he just been doing that? He has just completely ruined Darcy's reputation (in Lizzy's eyes, and if she spreads the story, in others' eyes as well) but he seems suddenly now reluctant to speak ill of a Darcy? But not too reluctant. He goes on to call her very proud.
Another thing that is puzzling ~ he says "[Miss Darcy] is nothing to me now". Ought she to be something to him? He seems to think that Miss Darcy owes him something for spending time with her.
