in consequence of the missive, I was struck..., penned by Barbara
that it seems very improper to grieve the same for a person to whom you’ve only been acquainted with some 6 weeks as you would for a beloved father, I am quite certain Marianne would most passionately disagree with that. From what she has shown of her character, there is no half way for her. Marianne invests and engages her emotions fully, indulging her sensibilities to the fullest, so I am convinced that she does not realize any difference in her feelings for either Willoughby or her father. Love is love, to Marianne, with no distinction. Therefore, from her perspective, would not the loss of either inspire the same depth of grief? I believe it would. So, to Marianne, she is acting the only way that she would consider proper.
