] So is the EB / Darcy match the impossible romantic dream, and Fanny / Edmund the possible ? Just a stray thought.
I think your thoughts are very well put. Lizzie and Mr. Darcy are the impossible dream (mine anyway) -- the story is great fiction and fun, and probably why P&P is one of JA's most famous novels. But the characters in MP are, IMHO, more realistic because they are less perfect. I found it very interesting reading, although not as much 'fun'.
Well, I need to get out into my English (in style, not geography)garden now while I have the weekend sun. Everyone, please keep writing about MP. I'm really enjoying the dialogue.
