I finished reading Persuasion today.
It wasn’t my favorite out of the 6, but it was interesting. I feel like Anne wasn’t able to experience the life she was created for…. as if the persuasion in her life made her miss out and take a completely different direction.
I tried to imagine what it would have been like for each of these characters if manipulation and persuasion wasn’t involved in their lives. Would they have known how each other felt? Would they have had the same experiences?
I guess I’ve never thought about characters who COULD HAVE HAD a different life… and Anne, plus all the others, could have had a 180 from the life that was presented in the book.
So, what is Jane trying to tell me? What is it that I’m suppose to discover from this? Hmmm… makes me think.
