Quote #10

Emma could not but rejoice to hear that she had a fault. (33.35)

We’re not talking about Emma’s own faults, here, of course. Emma’s delighted to hear the Jane isn’t quite perfect – especially when the speaker is Mr. Knightley. Austen’s novel doesn’t allow for perfect people – so choosing which sorts of faults you can live with becomes important.
