in consequence of the missive, He Wouldn't Be That Selfish, penned by Chandra
] ...as to marry a woman who mearly resembled his first love. That would be beastly.
I thought I made that clear! I MEANT the genuine affection and devotion he felt was for MARIANNE. At the top of the post here I leave my own quote about Colonel Brandon being a sensitive guy.I believe I stated that intially he may have been attracted to her due to similarities with Eliza but I never said he married her because of them! We know Marianne matured and the affection and regard between MARIANNE and the Colonel was strong and mutual. Of course he appreciated Marianne for herself, otherwise I think he would've been disappointed. We know Colonel Brandon was happy and "in Marianne he was consoled for every past affliction" Excuse me if I did not express myself clearly the first time. (Actually I really examining the pre-pubescent resemblances between E. and M. another participant brought to my attention).
