such feelings

Category: Education | Type: Discussion | Title: Emma (in Context) | Author: Jane Austen | Vol: Volume II | Ch: Chapter VI

Emma values strong, sincere feelings such as kindness and affection in both men (her notice of the Knightley brothers' coldness) and women. But she herself does not exemplify deep feeling except in her attachment to her father.

The reference to feelings continues a discussion of the matter of sentiment begun in Chapter 1 with Mr. Woodhouse's remarks about his horses.
