Tuesday’s With Jane

September 18, 2008 at 4:50 am 3 comments

Elinor could sit it no longer. She almost ran out of the room; and, as soon as the door closed, burst into tears of joy, which at first she thought would never cease. Edward, who had till then looked any where, rather than at her, saw her hurry away, and perhaps saw, or even heard, her emotion; for immediately afterwards he fell into a reverie, which no remarks or enquiries, no affectionate address of Mrs. Dashwood could penetrate, and at last, without saying a word, quitted the room, and walked out towards the village, leaving the others in the greatest astonishment and perplexity on a change in his situation so wonderful and so sudden,– a perplexity they had no means of lessening but by their own conjecture.

Jane Austen

(My goodness, that is one long sentence!)
