in consequence of the missive, Among other reasons ..., penned by Anne Butzen
Anne is no longer young, and doesn't sparkle like Eliz Bennet, but she is pretty, elegant, well-read and accomplished. It is only her father who didn't think much of her looks, because she doesn't resemble his. Anne's bloom is also restored in the course of the novel -- at Lyme chap 12 --
The word "elegant" s also used to describe her more than once -- elegance both of mind and appearance, she also has "fastidiousness of taste" -- that was why no other man could attract her. I think adaaptations the to over-emphasize the downtrodden, Cinderella aspects and even portray her as dowdy which is the opposite of elegant.
