In response to The real rebel..., written by Helen on May 28, 1998 at 12:58:32
] I really like the idea of JA being the real rebel in the middle of the Romantic era... while everyone around her was swooning and defying their parents all over the place, she was quietly advocating matches made on pragmatic grounds with parental approval... kind of like being the only person in a suit in the middle of the 1970s...
And I like the way you put it!
It seems she was the voice of reason and commons sense in a literary world that was going to extremes.
