in consequence of the missive, Quote Chapter 36, penned by Carolyn
I agree, especially since Lizzy has gone from one emotionally charged situation to another in what amounts to one day; from experience I know that is physically exhausting. I think Lizzy’s experience and feelings during each situation is realistically and naturally portrayed. First she found out Darcy separated Bingley from Jane, then Darcy proposes and accusations fly, then two solid hours of evaluating the letter in which Darcy holds up his interference in her sister’s life without remorse and then Lizzy finds she has been completely duped by Wickham and now must even question her judgment on top of all the rest. This is a great deal of turmoil to transverse in such a short time, I admire Lizzy’s desire to be an agreeable companion to her friends after reading the letter:
After wandering along the lane for two hours, giving way to every variety of thought -- re-considering events, determining probabilities, and reconciling herself, as well as she could, to a change so sudden and so important -- fatigue, and a recollection of her long absence, made her at length return home; and she entered the house with the wish of appearing cheerful as usual, and the resolution of repressing such reflections as must make her unfit for conversation. (Chapter 36)
