in consequence of the missive, Willoughby & vulnerable girls, penned by Bridget D
>he is out for his own pleasures
>I don't think that he gains any speical pleasure out of knowing that this girl or that one is particularly vulnerable. I dont think, as I've said before, that Miss Grey is a vulnerable young girl...
No, he doesn't gain any special pleasure out of knowing the vulnerability of the girl - he gains security and ease.
He isn't aligning himself with Miss Grey for pleasure. He intends marrying 50,000 ..err her ;-)
>I think that he is selfish and weak but I dont feel that he "targetted" Marainne becuase she had no father and a mother who neglected her maternal duty to ensure that her daughter was properly chaperoned and looked after. But he did take advantage of the situation that she was so ready to fall in love wiht him.
When selfishness and weakness can lead to the ruin of someone then that person qualifies as a monster IMO.
Yes, he targeted Marianne because she was ready to fall in love with him, and he saw how easy it would be to lead her on with an encouraging mother as excited as Marianne, who hesitates for so long to enquire her daughter where she stood with him.
Like a true predator he understood people and situations very well IMO and carried on from there.
