in consequence of the missive, Aggression?, penned by Kristina F
I think slashing a man with a sword is not unusual behavior in a duel but I would not go so far to say it is less than very aggressive and violent behavior. If it pleases you to consider S&S3 Brandon less aggressive than Brandon in the novel and the S&S2 screenplay I have no objection. When I christened S&S3 Brandon a bristling angry man it was not in comparison to S&S2 only the novel. In an interview on the DVD of S&S3 Andrew Davies said he went out of his way to make the heroes worthy of our sisters. Thus we have a retooled Brandon who seems angry, jealous, and suspicious and he confronts Willoughby when he ought not. In the novel Col Brandon does not act like this and he does not seem angry until he confesses to Elinor. How do you think the countenance and behavior of S&S3ís Brandon compares to the Original? (;D)
