*This is only MY opinion guys :)*
As you can no doubt tell from the title of this post poor Edward does not fair too well in my estimations. In fact, I find him to be a bit of a drip. Not only that but he commits a cardinal sin my leading on one of our Austen girls.
I mean really. At the end of the day what makes his actions any different from Willoughby’s?
Elinor - I have no doubt you will agree - is not a flighty girl, she is grounded and sticks to what is considered proper and yet she allowed her heart to become attached to this man who was paying her more than the usual amount of attention. What else was she to think than that he too had feeling for her.
Which he DID.
And then what does she find out. In the most round-about and hurtful way that he is already engaged to a young woman and yet paid court to her at the same time. Agh! It makes me so made.
Edward Ferrars you are a CAD!
Any hero’s from Jane Austen’s works that you think didn’t live up to being ‘all that’?
