Emma

Emma

There are two basic arguments I would like to bring up. One of those arguments is ?why or how is Emma marrying her brother-in-law? The other argument I would like to bring up is a line between Mr. Knightly and Miss Taylor. The line is ?I am sure you always thought me unfit for the office I held.? ?Yes,? said he, smiling. ?You are better placed here; very fit for a wife, but not at all for a governess.?(I.IV.33)
When looking at my first question I debate with myself on what the time would approve of. I am not sure of the thoughts or feelings of people in that time. Are they ok with such a marriage I found it weird that it was not even a debate in the book. No other characters even questioned the marriage. My thoughts on this is that it must have been ok in that time to marry within the family or just because the relationship was created through marriage
Looking at my second argument was a controversial question in class.
