] I think the difference is that I see Elinors as people who can act rationally with little or no struggle, and for Mariannes it is a real struggle sometimes to deny the emotions. ( I know people will exclaim and say that life is no picnic for Elinors either.)
Elinor is a poignant example of one who suffers in silence...and thus, people can make their own assumptions about her because she is a blank space on which they can interpret her as they see fit. And as it is sometimes human nature to view things in their most negative light....to embellish the unknown in the worst way....yes, one could say that Elinors have their own brand of agony to deal with.
