Sounds very much like the ideas in Harding's _Regulated Hatred_ essays: that these sorts of characters reflect people whom JA could not STAND, and she worked out those negative, agressive attitudes through her writing.
S&S really does abound in vividly drawn nasty characters who really push our buttons: Lucy, Robert, Fanny Dashwood...
And then, of course, there's that ultimate eruption from the id, as James S. would put it, the seemingly suave sexy and actually _evil_ Willoughby.
