] "No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy, would have supposed her born to be an herione"
](snip) how a herione is expected to have lived... and how poor Catherine fails to live up to the ideal.
] Yet we know from the beginning that she's meant to be a herione, all the same.
I love the part where all her attempts at learning by heart paragraphs for quotation purposes are detailed.
You know, at one time I also despaired myseld of ever becoming a heroine: a special sensitive spot was my absolute failure as regards quoting poets and so on. I sympathize a lot with poor Catherine.
BTW, I have not become a heroine so far, but hope dies hard. ;-)
