In response to Lady Susan, written by Marsha on April 21, 1998 at 03:30:03
] Lady Dusan is the most opportunistic of them all. And while she loses reginald (?) she marries a man with a lot of money.
] Mrs Clay is another one that comes to mind. JA leaves it pretty open whether WWElliot is going to get rid to her or get mattied to her instead.
Those are two great examples. Mrs. Clay especially is like an older Lucy Steele. Lady Susan is wealthier so I consider her more ruthless than opportunistic, but I suppose she is both. Still, in the JA catalogue of opportunists, Lucy Steele is tops. As people have pointed out, she gets TWO guys to marry her against their better judgment. She's amazing.
