in consequence of the missive, Interesting points about Marianne and the colonel, penned by Barbara
First, Lady and Sir John Middleton's raptures show shameless want of taste.
She thinks Edward has no real taste (ch .3). Edwards approbation was very far from that rapturous delight, which, in her opinion, could alone be called taste.
Her thoughts about Edward are almost repeated exactly with the Colonel in the quote you have given. Except that she allows that the Col. Brandon has some taste. She just thinks he's too feeble to have exquisite power of enjoyment.
