] Her attitudes propably changed a bit over time, too, as she got older, maybe? Did she get more impatient of society as time went on?
Hil - I made a number of comments in reply to Erin that are relevant to your post, too, and won't repeat those here. But the question of whether JA got more impatient as time went on is an interesting one. It has been my impression, since reading Persuasion and watching the AR/CH film, that JA became more serene as time went on. I cannot imagine someone angry or impatient writing as forgiving and understanding a novel as Persuasion.
