] Another undercurrent of dislike between Brandon and Willoughby, perhaps?
While reading your posts I'm reminded of Elinor's whole But why should you dislike him?" conversation with Willoughby..
he has threatened me with rain when I wanted it to be fine; he has found fault with the hanging of my curricle, and I cannot persuade him to buy my brown mare.
Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but imagine if the gentlemen _were_ involved in political discussion out int he world of men; could the first two parts of the above, the bold bit, refer to the way Brandon's political side argues about these issues, and threats; and Willoughby's denounces them? Where a certain social conduct is thought agreeable to one side, and opposed by the other?
aye me, i think I'm getting random!
