in consequence of the missive, Was Darcy's proposal a rational decision?, penned by Tracy W
But this idea was soon banished, and her spirits were very differently affected, when, to her utter amazement, she saw Mr. Darcy walk into the room. In an hurried manner he immediately began an enquiry after her health, imputing his visit to a wish of hearing that she were better. She answered him with cold civility. He sat down for a few moments, and then getting up, walked about the room. Elizabeth was surprised, but said not a word. After a silence of several minutes, he came towards her in an agitated manner… (Chapter 34)
Darcy walks about the room and cannot settle into a comfortable spot; I think his agitated manner illustrates that he is still struggling with his scruples before he gives in and proposes—I vain I have struggled… I agree, I do not think Darcy is quite thinking things through at this point or thinking of Lizzy’s feelings, only what he wants. :D
