in consequence of the missive, Persuasion comes in fourth for me, penned by Lauren Ashley
Darcy and Knightley certainly aren't. And they marry women who complement them. And, in the case of Persuasion, Anne, who is quiet and reserved, marries Frederick, who is more open and outgoing. Again, opposites attracting.
And then there's S&S. Neither Elinor nor Edward sparkle. But I have great admiration for them both.
As I do for Fanny. Who, contrary to popular belief, has a spine of stainless steel. She is a far better judge of character than either Elizabeth or Emma. She knows who she is as a person long before Elizabeth or Emma do. I like her a lot. I didn't like her when I first read MP when I was 18, but a re-read when I was 40 made me change my mind so fast I almost got whiplash. I'm very glad I didn't read Persuasion until I was older; I may not have appreciated Anne back then either.
