Transcript of Satire: Connecting Anne with Muriel

The Bite That Binds
•"Elizabeth had succeeded at sixteen to all that was possible of her mother's rights and consequence; and being very handsome, and very like himself, her influence had always been great... Mary had acquired a little artificial importance by becoming Mrs Charles Musgrove; but Anne, with an elegance of mind and sweetness of character... was nobody with either father or sister; her word had no weight, her convenience was always to give way - she was only Anne.

Incongruity between a situation developed in a drama and the accompanying words or actions that is understood by the audience
...she was perfectly conscious of Lady Russell's eyes being turned exactly in the direction of him (Captain Wentworth)... 'You will wonder', said Lady Russell, 'what has been fixing my eye so long; but I was looking after some window-curtains...' Anne sighed and blushed and smiled, in pity and disdain, either at her friend or herself.

sardonicism, bitterness, ridicule
Mrs Clay: 'Poor man! I was really in pain for him; for your hard-hearted sister, Miss Anne, seems bent on cruelty'
a representation of something in an excessive manner
... (Mr Elliot's) manners were so exactly what they ought to be, so polished, so easy, so particularly agreeable...
The quality or condition of being incongruous:
out of keeping or place; inappropriate; unbecoming
'... and who is Miss Anne Elliot to be visiting in Westgate Buildings? - A Mrs Smith. A widow Mrs Smith... Upon my word, Miss Anne Elliot, you have the most extraordinary taste! Everything that revolts other people, low company, paltry rooms, foul air, disgusting associations are inviting to you.'
