Go To



Mr Elliot is a sociopath, or near enough to one as we're going to find in a JaneAusten novel. Mrs Smith decries him as a monster, at any rate, and everything else we see is pretty consistent with that supposition. Given that, are we supposed to believe that he married wealthy young Fanny and then she conveniently died of natural causes, rendering him wealthy and free to pursue a marriage for greater social station?

[[WMG: Catherine Morland of ''Northanger Abbey'' is a troper]]
Catherine Morland of ''Literature/NorthangerAbbey'' is a troper and she wrote the WMG above. She should consider the age and the country in which Mr Elliot lived.
