|An extended Persuasion

We are told that Frederick has "a great deal of intelligence, spirit and brilliancy", but we do not see much of it in the book. In the scenes we have, he is resentful at first, and by the end, anxious about how Anne feels. Nowhere do we (or at least I)see the brilliance and spirit that would have captivated Anne. (I see the love he feels for her, but not brilliance)
So am I missing something? Are there any other places where you wish Austen had extended the book?
