Thornfield and the Gothic

JNEYR-J5O8CJ

All of the following quotations support the idea that Thornfield Hall is a suitable setting for a Gothic novel EXCEPT

A

"Everything appeared very stately and imposing to me; but then I was so little accustomed to grandeur."

B

"...the eerie impression made by that wide hall, that dark and spacious staircase, and that long, cold gallery."

C

"The roads were heavy, the night misty; my conductor let his horse walk all the way, and the hour and a half extended, I verily believe, to two hours."

D

"It was a curious laugh; distinct, formal, mirthless. I stopped: the sound ceased, only for an instant; it began again, louder."

E

"Thornfield is a fine old hall, rather neglected of late years perhaps, but still it is a respectable place."
