In response to Poetry - the food of Love?, written by Janet on November 21, 1997 at 18:21:56
Okay, I asked the questions; now, here is my thinking. I can only imagine that love poetry was regarded by many young women of the period as a plus in the mating ritual. JA possibly did not view it as such, hence Lizzy's reaction and Darcy's final reaction(Darcy only smiled). Is it plausible that Lizzy's reaction is atypical of that period, thus causing Darcy to further appreciate Lizzy's character?
