in consequence of the missive, Admiring Pope 'no more than is proper', penned by Barbara
In the novel, she's into Cowper and at least some Shakespeare (Hamlet, mentioned in ch 16), and comes across as a right fruitcake when she apostrophises the trees at Norland.
In S&S1 she wallows deeper in the romantic: Cowper and gothic novels, but no Shakespeare (yet).
In S&S2 she's quite high-brow, with an increased emphasis on Shakespeare, and (I'm pleased to learn) a reference to Pope.
