in consequence of the missive, Why do we see so little of Edward Ferrars?, penned by Tess
Perhaps JA wants us to be able to focus on the differences in the way the two sisters think and react to what their senses percieve- and Edward's personality may not really be as important or should not distract one. And well, as Rachel pointed out, somehow him not really being there emulates his shyness better - and we feel like and experience him like some of the characters do - that he takes time to get to know.
