in consequence of the missive, I blame Jane, penned by Karen G.
Edward wasn't really aware that Elinor was in love, seeing that she could govern those feelings of hers.
So staying on at Norland was perhaps more of a torture for Edward.
I think Elinor subconsciously knows that Edward might not have been aware of her feelings while she as a very good observer could see his and let her governed ones be guided by his.
