in consequence of the missive, Interesting observation, penned by Diba
"A very fine young man indeed!" said Lady Dalrymple. "More air than one often sees in Bath. Irish, I dare say." "No, I just know his name. A bowing acquaintance. Wentworth: Captain Wentworth of the navy. His sister married my tenant in Somersetshire, the Croft who rents Kellynch."(Ch.20)
The only time the word 'brilliant' is used outside of chapter four is in Ch.20 "Anne saw nothing, thought nothing of the brilliancy of the room." - but the shallow souls that were focused on that above all else, did notice Captain Wentworth on that occasion.
So perhaps his 'brilliancy' is nothing more than dazzling good looks?
