in consequence of the missive, Wickham’s charms and Darcy’s failures (Long), penned by Robbin
I liked how you compare their behaviour and the impact it had point by point. I think you pictured well what Elizabeth and the others thought as a result of what they have seen in these two men till now. From the contrast Wickam is definatelly the winner, IMHO. I really don't find Darcy disagreadle, but I 'm begining to understand he was expected to act differently. We shouldn't forget this is the case in real life: people can be charming from the first minutes of an acquaintance and others cannot. What is to follow no one knows...I was astonished to notice how charming Wickam is supposed to be: "...the best of them were of the present party; but Mr. Wickham was as far beyond them all in person, countenance, air, and walk, as they were superior to the broad-faced, stuffy uncle Philips..."(Ch 16). The actors I have seen weren't so...in that degree at least..
Sorry for being too late :-)
