] I read something recently that said that we wind up liking Emma because that narrator likes her and Mr. Knightley likes her, and those are irresistable forces in Emma. What do you think of that?
In reading Emma, I've been marking in pink Emma's thoughts and reactions, and in purple various other descriptions of people, and sometimes, I can't tell which is Emma's and which is the narrator's! That further bolsters my opinion that Emma is JA's inner-most "evil" self [see my post on Emma/JA parallels] that she couldn't reveal to many, besides her beloved sister, Cassandra.
