In response to Edmund, Mary, and Fanny, written by Tamee on June 24, 1998 at 14:32:56
It seems as if in the presence of Mary and Fanny, that Edmund allows his to attribute Fanny's virtues to Mary's character. >
I would almost be tempted to say that subconsciously he grew more aware of Fanny's charms during his own courtship of Mary; that his love of her grew with his love of Mary, and only after the breakup did he begin to realize how important Fanny had become to him.
You are absolutely right!
Actually, it makes a lot of sense!
Stretching the theory a bit we may say that he was projecting Fanny's substantive goodness into Mary's apparent goodness and that he was falling in love with Fanny embodied in Mary.... oh the possibilities! Rather Freudian I guess, but I love it all the same!!!!!!
