] I read somewhere in Jane Austen-A family record that when Jane Austen was once asked who is her favorite male character in her books, she replied they were Mr. Knightly and Edmund Bertam.
Me, too! Their genuine compassion and kindness to those around them, combined with their intelligence and morality makes them my clear favorites. I would rank them: 1) Mr Knightley and 2) Edmund.
