Jane Austen moment in Persuasion
of the accident at Lyme. Lady Russell had not been arrived five minutes the day before,
when a full account of the whole had burst on her; but still it must be talked of, she must
make enquiries, she must regret the imprudence, lament the result, and Captain Wentworth's
name must be mentioned by both. Anne was conscious of not doing it so well well as Lady Russel She could not speak the name, and look straight forward to Lady Russell's eye, till she
had adopted the expedient of telling her briefly what she thought of the attachment between
him and Louisa. When this was told, his name distressed her no longer
Lady Russell had only to listen composedly, and wish them happy, but internally her heart revelled in angry pleasure, in pleased contempt that the man who at twenty-three had seemed
to understand somewhat of the value of an Anne Elliot, should, eight years afterwards, be charmed by a Louisa Musgrove.
