In response to What would you call "Emma" if not "Emma"?, written by Kate on September 14, 1997 at 17:19:38
How about "Presumption and Approach Avoidance"? ;-} Or "Pretension and Delusion"? Or some hybridization of the two? I think the use of dichotomous terms in the title fits the novel's various ironic situations very well. Everyone has trouble facing the truth in some way or another, yet everyone also fancies him or herself in possession of superior knowledge of human nature.
