Italy Country on Mr Crawley was known to be a man not easy of persuasion, with a will ofhis own, with a great energy of obstinacy on points which he chose to take up as being of importance to his calling, or to his own professional status. He had pleaded his own cause before the magistrates, and it might be that he would insist on doing the same thing before the judge (103). Will of his own here is a synonym for stubbornness, for obstinately holding one’s own, as in the narrator’s description of Lily Dale’s behavior after she has been jilted by Adolphus Crosbie: But she had been very strong, stout at heart, of a fixed purpose, and capable of resistance against oppression. Even her own mother had been astonished, and sometimes almost dismayed, by the strength ofher will (160).
