in consequence of the missive, deep feeling, penned by Sonja K.
that Elinor is 19! Imagine my surprise when I realised that Lucy Steele is about four years older than her. Elinor is one of the most mature Austen heroines, I think I put her at around 30 for maturity. Just goes to show you that age is sometimes only a number!
I have known 17 year-olds (and younger (and older come to think of it)) like Marianne. I once again bow down to Jane Austen's power of portrayal with Marianne. Shows that human nature is rather unchanging.
