in consequence of the missive, I think that, penned by Reeba
I beg to differ with that, as IMO Marianne's views and manners are based upon a combination of her youth, life inexperience and her passion for the 'cult' of sensibility which was so prevalent and fashionable at the time. I think it very unlikely Marianne's manner of thinking will remain the same all her life, and change into adult absolutism as you say. Her youthful naivete is inevitably going to change as she grows up and learns life experience. IMHO, Marianne's youth has a lot to do with the way she is. She has not yet seen much of the world and has taken many of her views from books and plays. Sixteen is an impressionable age and Marianne revels in reading dramatic, romantic poetry and literature. To some extent, this will have formed her current opinions and manner of thinking.
