] Since, IMHO, I think you've shot one right thru the bulls-eye in your post. I think I can see Jeremy Northam's mouth falling open and his eyes popping out right now! Henry is the real hero, of course. I was refraining from clogging up this thread with my thoughts, but with the latest posts I can't help adding my 9 shillings: Henry can also be seen in 1990's terms as a man who's in touch with his "feminine" side. He's really interested in muslins, and why not, indeed? As a "comfort" to his sister, he'll be an understanding husband. And he's a smooth talker who also just happens to be a pretty decent guy. So how did he end up with a sweetheart like Catherine? Aren't the nice guys supposed to wind up stuck with Isabellas?
Wow, a compliment from you and Jeremy! How will I fit my swollen head through the door? ;-) Thank you!
I like your updating of Henry ("feminine side") and I agree with your last sentence (always wonder why some couples are together, but you never know!). I guess in JA, everyone really does get what he/she deserves. Although, again, as much as I like Catherine, I wonder if Henry wasn't just a little too good for her?
