As for admiration, it was always very welcome when it came, but she did not depend on it. Mrs. Allen was so long in dressing, that they did not enter the ball-room till late. The season was full,p the room crowded, and the two ladies squeezed in as well as they could. As for Mr. Allen, he repaired directly to the card-room, and left them to enjoy a mob by themselves. With more care for the safety of her new gown than for the comfort of her protȳgȳe, Mrs. Allen made her way through the throng of men by the door, as swiftly as the necessary caution would allow; Catherine, however, kept close at her side, and linked her arm too firmly within her friend舗s to be torn asunder by any common effort of a struggling assembly.
How old-fashioned it is! 舡 After some time they received an offer of tea from one of their neighbours; it was thankfully accepted, and this introduced a light conversation with the gentleman who offered it, which was the only time that any body spoke to them during the evening, till they were discovered and joined by Mr. Allen when the dance was over. 舡 舠Very agreeable, indeed,舡 she replied, vainly endeavouring to hide a great yawn. 舒I have been saying how glad I should be if the Skinners were here this winter instead of last; or if the Parrys had come, as they talked of once, she might have danced with George Parry.
Later, when Austen informs the reader about Catherine Morland舗s femininity and intelligence, she simply presents her as a tomboy 舠fond of all boys舗 plays舡 and 舠often inattentive, and occasionally stupid舡 (pp. 7-8). This technique of deliberate abstraction invites reader participation, and that involvement is essential to Austen舗s enterprise. Unlike French novelists of the nineteenth century舒Honore de Balzac or Gustave Flaubert, for example舒Austen does not seek to recreate a world by filling the page with descriptions of people and objects.
