In response to Shy???, written by RachelE on November 24, 1997 at 00:48:51
] ] This also helps to prove my point that Darcy was not fundamentally shy.
] Darcy? Shy?? Reserved, yes. Proud, yes. Does this mean he was shy? I usually equate shyness with a fear of what others will think, therefore an unwillingness to speak to them. (or at least somehow feeling reluctant to speak based on inferiority of some kind) Darcy was certainly not afraid of them, he thought he was above them intellectually. If your definition of shyness is different, let me know! :-)
I'm sorry Rachel, I don't understand your response. I found Kate's comment to be in support of the claim that Darcy was not a shy individual. My post stems from a discussion last week on the P&P board on the issue of whether Darcy hid his diffidence behind what others preceived to be his aloofness. My opinion on the matter mirrors yours. :-)
