...though not perfectly well spelt praise, as 'a fine dashing felow, only two perticular about the school-master,'...
A nice representation of Dick Musgrove's horrible spelling! XD I actually laughed at this while reading. Persuasion isn't that bad after all. I didn't fall asleep, you know.
'Spelt' seems to have two meanings here -- that Dick did praise Captain Wentworth to a large full extent (since he minds Wentworth being concerned on the area of Education; but if he can't even grasp his dominant language, of course... questioning his education is perfectly fine since it's important to his profession) and also that funny thing about Dick's spelling errors. XDDDDD Wheeee Jane Austen is sarcastic.
But why is she so much against Dick Musgrove anyway?
...those extraordinary bursts of mind, which do sometimes occur..
Haha... Austen is sarcastic ya... =P About Mrs. Musgrove not having to grieve over 'poor Richard' so much.
Yesh. And my new category in this blog is 'Literature'. It's kinda fun to note down what I read in these books. Hopefully it'll help me in my Lit too.
