in consequence of the missive, GR: Understanding General Tilney, penned by Linda Fern
Thank you so much for your insightful posts about General Tilney. One difference between then and now is that someone like GT -- rich, landed and male -- found it much easier to get away with his tyranny than he would now. You managed to separate from your GT: Mrs Tilney could not.
On the other hand, she did have a huge great former abbey and its grounds to find secluded walks. Pity those women who were married to a GT in a small, cramped house.
