in consequence of the missive, Miss Bingleys jealousy, penned by Johanna Elisabet
]In chapter 45 the ON tells us that Miss Bingley is jealous of Elizabeth but that she is not yet desperate. I´m afraid that this is a statement where I disagree. When Elizabeth stayed at Neatherfield Miss Bingle had to resort to some desperate moves to make mr Darcy notice her. Even if she feels more secure now at Pemberley, possibly not knowing of the time Mr Darcy spent in Elizabeths company at Rosings, she is reduced to desperate measures again only a few moments after Elizabeth and Mrs Gardiner leaves Pemberley.
This stood out for me too. True, her desparation is not the sort of noticeably aggitated or intense kind. I would say it is more a calm calculated, last-ditch-measure kind of thing but desparation, nevertheless.
