At Last, Emma Opens Her Eyes!

EMMA, Vol. III Chapter XI

  • Why was it so much worse that Harriet should be in love with Mr. Knightley, than with Frank Churchill? Why was the evil so dreadfully increased by Harriet’s having some hope of a return? It darted through her, with the speed of an arrow, that Mr. Knightley must marry no one but herself!

Breaking News: Highbury

EMMA, Vol. III Chapter X

Mr. Weston shows up one day to fetch Emma, telling her only that she is needed at Randalls, something has happened.

Emma goes with Mr. Weston at once, and pleads with him to tell her what has happened.

“Do not be impatient, Emma; it will all come out too soon.”

“Good God! Mr. Weston, tell me at once. Something has happened in Brunswick Square. I know it has . . . Mr. Weston, do not trifle with me.”

Brunswick Square is the London address of the Knightleys. Emma’s sister and brother-in-law and their children are there. More importantly, Mr. Knightley (George) has just left for Brunswick Square, alone, on horseback (How very dashing! How self wishes she, too, could leap on a horse and say, at a moment’s notice: Headed to London! Ta!)

Mr. Weston hastens to reassure Emma: “Upon my honour . . . It is not in the smallest degree connected with any human being of the name of Knightley.”

Indeed? The plot thickens!

Stay tuned.
