Emma, endearing or a complete jerk? July 9, 2008

Hello fellow Jane Austen adventurers. Hope everone had a fabulous Fourth of July and got plenty of reading done 🙂

As I read Emma I often wonder if a language barrier is causing me to think more poorly of Emma than I ought to. Some of things that “come out of her mouth” seem completely terrible and insensitive, but no one reacts to what she says. This leads me to believe that I just don’t understand the language as well as I should. Or maybe they were just so shocked by her answer they couldn’t answer appropriately. Anyway…

We are meeting at Wystones Tea located in Belmar. It’s located near the non-Alameda entrance to Dick’s Sporting Goods, or near Yankee Candle. Please read to Part III.
