in consequence of the missive, My interpretation ..., penned by Susan L
I am struck by the rational tone of the words in this passage. But even in their reasonableness (is this a word?), you can sense wistfulness and some turoil. If only she hadn't told Darcy... The irony that the tables were now turned (at least in her mind)...A sense of loss...That he was the perfect man for her, but that this was not to be...the fact that Wickham and Lydia's marriage (as superficial as it is) would preclude a truly virtuous union such as that between Darcy and Elizabeth...All of this illustrated with measured words.
Now here is the 64,000 dollar question (as we Americans say).. Does she love Darcy at this point? or does she just recognize rationally that they would be good together?
