In response to Another for Mrs. Norris, written by Constanza on May 18, 1998 at 13:58:03
] Quite a list G.Kay, it must have been difficult to put it together ;-)
Like Elinor drumming up sympathy for Lucy, it cost me some pains to secure that little bit of justice for Mrs. Norris!
] Have you noticed that Mrs. Norris, Lady Catherine and Mr. Collins seek to be useful and end up by being officious?
And what a good word 'officious' is for describing their behavior--to act as if with official authority but lacking in a genuine sense of duty and service to others.
By the way, COnstanza, I found out who Fanny Ward was in Cold COmfort Farm--she was a very famous Silent Movie star. If she had lived to the Age of Television, she would have been old indeed! No wonder Aunt Ada Doom thought to model herself after such a guiding Light!
