Oh yes, the conditioning is undeniable. Matthew Crawley is a do-good, duty-bound, mother’s best son. It’s ridiculous to try to make him wear the one-size-fits-all, bad-boy character outline.

Elizabeth Gaskell: Would any reccomend a good continuation of North and South? 9 38 Jan 14, 2015 09:03PM  
“Margaret was not a ready lover, but where she loved she loved passionately, and with no small degree of jealousy.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

“He could not forget the touch of her arms around his neck, impatiently felt as it had been at the time; but now the recollection of her clinging defence of him, seemed to thrill him through and through,—to melt away every resolution, all power of self-control, as if it were wax before a fire.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

“My dear girl, you don't consent to an abduction! You consent to an elopement, and I knew you wouldn't do that.”
Georgette Heyer, Black Sheep

“Well, He had known what love was-a sharp pang, a fierce experience, in the midst of whose flames he was struggling! but, through that furnace he would fight his way out into the serenity of middle age,-all the richer and more human for having known this great passion.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South

“Indeed! I am truly glad to hear it. I always always fond of Osborne; and, do you know, I never really took to Roger; I respected him and all that, of course. But to compare him with Mr. Henderson! Mr. Henderson is so handsome and well-bred, and gets all his gloves from Houbigant!”
Elizabeth Gaskell, Wives and Daughters
