] I'm not exactly conversant in Gothic literature, but these strike me as the sort of things a "typical" heroine would say or do. Of course, in Isabella's case, it's all surface heroism--she has none of the sincerity or depth of feeling that would bring weight to her words.
Good point. Isabella has all the trappings down, doesn't she? She has all the surface moves of friendship, flirtation and love, but no substance. One wonders if she is even capable of a true depth of feeling.
