20 shades of hero/villain Mr. Darcy

I've collected links to a dozen and a half posts I've written and Tweeted about during the past year or so, which collectively illuminate many dark shadows of the subtext of Pride & Prejudice which involve they mysterious and enigmatic Byronic hero Mr. Darcy.

Reading them piecemeal is one thing, but seeing them all as part of a larger pattern (as to which I have a great deal more material I've never publicly written about) is, I think, more informative.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks, ARNIE
