in consequence of the missive, Elizabeth has her feelings worked out already., penned by Helen Halstead
...in what I said above, because I do not believe Lizzy was attracted to Darcy prior to the proposal; and given what we know up through Chapter 34, I see no evidence that her level of attraction has changed. But I do believe that the shock of Darcy's proposal has forced Lizzy to take a hard look at herself and her encounters with Darcy.
I see no evidence here for increased affection, but I see plenty of evidence of Lizzy's review of what had taken place at the proposal and reflection on the many months Darcy's love had been growing. She must have asked herself how he could have believed she was assenting, encouraging him; and this would lead her to think about what she had done and said in former meetings. But now I repeat what I said several days ago (below), so I'll stop.
