pride and prejdice was i thinkn the victorian period, and i read on the compmliments of mr collins, they were very structured in their flattery, like it said sing praises to the lady catherine "possess the talent of flattering with delicacy" i'm trying to process it, but

"I sometimes amuse myself with suggesting and arranging such little elegant compliments as may be adapted to ordinary occasions"

i kinda get what their saying, but they were so structured in their compliments, as if it were a language, rather than a intention. To flatter in such sophisticated manner, but it feels like that was a part of their language back then.
