EN 102: Blood Will Tell Critical Commentary: Volume II, Chapter 4 What she was, must be uncertain; but who she was, might be found out; and setting aside the 10,000l. it did not appear that she was at all Harriet’s superior. She brought no name, no blood, no alliance.” Deciphering this quote, one comes to realize that this assignment is a critical commentary about a critical commentary. Emma, in her own true fashion, is being judgmental and critical of Miss Hawkins. Miss Hawkins has recently married Mr. Elton and has taken his name, becoming Mrs. Elton. Emma retains her old stance on Mrs. Elton, despising her for always wanting to be the center of attention. She focuses on how Mrs. Elton attempts to act elegant, intelligent, and talented, even though she is none of these things. Along with her previous reservations of Mrs. Elton, Emma now dislikes her even more because she has meddled with Emma’s plan to match Harriet and Mr. Elton together. Emma has failed yet again at being the great matchmaker she thinks herself to be.
