] BTW, have you notice that - as far as villians go - JA's woman are spiteful and intelligent (in most cases) whereas her men are either reckless or dumb (that is their villany is the consequence of either or both).
And the men never inquire, but the women are all too curious--except of course for Mrs. Ferrars whose words and ideas are numerically matched. I think my favorite villainous folks are Fanny Dashwood (heartless greed) Mrs. Norris (obsessive greed) and Mr. Elliot (hypocritical greed).
