] I think the probelm is that as JA describes Fanny she's weak, physically, intellectually, emotionally, but not morally. She always having headaches or coming because she's tired.
I agree with that, but...
All-in-all this makes her more of a Jane Eyre character than I have suspected before but without the courage to risk all to act on her feelings.
I don't agreee with this! In fact, in my weak mind, there is no comparison!! :-)
that Fanny is carrying a good load of suppresses rage
If you are saying JE is carring around supressed rage, I think she has supressed quite a bit, but not rage. Love, and life itself to name a few.
This is an interesting thought, I'll have to think about it.
