in consequence of the missive, Negative view of Willoughby, penned by Robbin
I dont think he's likely to reform much, no.... but I dont think that EVERYTHING he does is activated entirely by bad motives, such as his rush to see Marianne. Like most people his motvives are mixed...I think that he had a "romantic" idea of rushing ot her deathbed....And he hoped that by making the romantic dash, he would be forgiven by her and her family.. so it was partly a selfish motive... but in essence I think that he did have feelings for her and he was shocked and upset at her possible death and wanted to see her out of genuine emotion....
I think that he was aware of his marriage being unlikely to produce happiness.. but possibly HAD he been able to marry marianne, he woudl nto have been a bad husband... I think that like Henry C wiht Fanny, he truly regretted her loss...
