in consequence of the missive, So how could Elinor and Marianne forgive him?, penned by MarianneR
I have an understanding of Elinor that she is a very mature person for her age. I think that during Willoughby's explanations she truly sees Willoughby as he is, a man so immature and incapable of understanding what kinds of sufferings he has brought to other people. Elinor pities him AND she also remembers the good things about him which she loved and so she is able to forgive.
I think that even though Elinor knows all these things Willoughby has done, he is still very appealing and likeble. Some people just are like that and I would think Willoughby is one of them. Elinor disapproves what he has done but still feels his charm.
But think: nothing of this would have happened if Elinor would have been the one to take the walk and sprain her ancle!
