] One of the things that really peeved CB in life as in the novel was the assuption that some people could be simply ignored, pushed to the side if they were gifted with extraodinary talent, beauty or wealth. Once she got attention, CB used it to further her cause. She was still angry at the assuptions of her society until she died, IMHO. All of my suppositions are based are her published letters to Mrs Gaskell.
