I am constantly astonished in the amount of persuasion that is in Persuasion. Now, obviously, it’s the over-arching theme in the novel, but the amount of dismissal toward personal emotion is overwhelming.
As I read, I’m noticing that Anne (as well as the other characters) denies her emotions… and I’m wondering if all these characters are only a hollow shell of their actual selves.
In the art and nostalgia of this blog, I’ve discovered that I can not deny my emotions. I’m not easily persuaded like these characters; however, I am still able to be a subject of manipulation. There is a large amount of trickery among who actual loves who and why…
That’s all for now.
