in consequence of the missive, A reflection on Marianne that would not be at all to her taste, penned by Tracy W
I agree with you observaton, but I beleive that Marianne herself would be quite put off by it! Her attitude, I'm sure, would be that her own "conclusions" are superior to Mrs. Jennings' because they stem from her passions and emotions, her observations on the world ome from the very sensibility that she represents.
Mrs. Jennings' conclusions, however, come from a smallness of mind that is quite appalling for someone of Marianne's sensibilities. Marianne credits her emotions as the foundation just as much as cold hard facts (more, actually, in her case), but Mrs. Jennings is simply looking for a joke.
