in consequence of the missive, generosity of feeling LONG, penned by Stephanie
As you have shown Stephanie, very well actually, to Willoughby everything is all about him, all of the time. During Willoughby’s confession Marianne (nor anyone else) impacts his thoughts with any clarity, with any empathy, with any real concern or any true apology. If he had any feeling at all for Elinor and Marianne he would have continued on to Comb Magna after the servant told him Marianne was out of danger. Really, whether she was dying or surviving was immaterial because his purpose at Cleveland was to make himself feel better—what other’s feel is nowhere on his radar. What is creepy, aside from his creeping around in shadows, is that he is able to fool so many folks into thinking he is a great guy. (:D) “Yes -- no -- never absolutely. It [his love] was every day implied, but never professedly declared. Sometimes I thought it had been -- but it never was." (39)
