In reply to Willoughby and Marianne? posted by Rita on August 25, 1997 at 15:56:53
] I am quite confused by this relationship, i had no problem believing that Wickham was a jerk but found Willoughby was a little more complex.
] It seemed as if he did love Marianne. I find it difficult to believe that the relationship was not real. Can anybody help?
I think you're right in believing the relationship was real. I think Willoughby loved Marianne, too. He was a weak person with a good heart, and unfortunately Marianne needed him to be strong. Such is the stuff of which tragedies are made. I view Willoughby as a tragic figure.
