    I dedicate this post to the VERY disagreeable two people talking very loudly about books a certain local library outside deck. One insisted that Jane Austen was considered an victorian writer although Jane Austen wasn’t living during Victoria’s reign. Yes, I tried to bite my tongue for as long as I could but had to say as I stormed off…”REGENCY”!!!!
    This answer by Clara Hamilton is brilliant……
    Clara Hamilton, Read every book many times, did a project on her as well
    Updated Jul 25
    I have no idea why anybody would think that! Jane Austen died in 1817, Victoria was crowned in 1837 at the age of eighteen and as such wasn’t even born when Austen died. Surely you have to be alive during at least some of a period to write in it.
    Perhaps some people feel that her books are somewhat puritanical and moralistic and that’s why they belong in the strict world of upper class victorian society and they did become increasingly popular during the nineteenth century in a way they had never been while Jane Austen was alive. Apparently it’s not as disgraceful being a female writer if you’re dead. But her books do not in fact live up to many of the romantic ideals in the early victorian world. Yes, the heroine always gets the right man for her, the man she loves, but only when it’s practical to do so. Only when it doesn’t really conflict with any of the social or moral barriers. No one dies for their love! No one is thrust into poverty or disgrace even through faults of their own. No one is tragically struck down in their prime or murdered. None of the main characters anyway. Jane Austen tries to create a tragic situation in Persuasion which is set closer to the romantic period but it doesn’t really fit the profile and the whole scene where Louisa Musgrove falls from the stairs and hits her head is one of the strangest in all her books. Like she was just trying it out. And in the end Louisa doesn’t even die. She recovers and marries a sea captain who at the same time gets over his long lost tragic love that everyone thought he would carry forever. Very sensible. But not very romantic. Romantic is to perish on the altar of true love. Not to get over it like a normal person and get on with your life. In fact all of Jane Austen’s love is very reasonable, understandable and sensible. It’s still love. It’s just not Romeo and Juliet and why should it be? Jane Austen wrote as close to social realism as you could get in the napoleonic era. The only difference was she gave her heroines a glimmer of hope by letting them marry the man they chose. And when they are all mysteriously of the same social class, or almost, as themselves why is that so terribly unrealistic? That’s properly also why she never moved on to what happened after the wedding. Because she knew all too well about those realities.
    Jane Austen’s world is a place divided into classes and with reasonable outcomes. She takes things like, eloping, illegitimate children, mistresses, divorce, mothers dying in childbirth and mismatched marriages, not to mention financial matters, into account. They are not unimportant matters for domestic bliss. Unlike in the victorian era where the style was much more: Oliver Twist, it’s better that his mother is dead because she gave birth to an illegitimate child, but she was a good person and therefore she is properly in heaven, and it’s also only because his mother was so good and his father was so rich that little Oliver is such a kind boy. Everyone who sins dies. But it’s okay; it’s better to die. Death cleanses us of all sins; from vice, drunkenness and of course poverty. That’s the victorian attitude. Generally speaking. Doesn’t sound very Jane Austen does it? Many people almost die in her books but that’s usually as a means to mend their ways or mend relationships and they always pull through in the end. And most importantly they are not punished for their sins. Some people live quite happily despite their crimes and some don’t, but there’s no devine justice. Unlike pretty much every work of romantic fiction like Jane Eyre; which is also fabulous but not very realistic.

    “She was the sun of my life, the gilder of every pleasure,
    the soother of every sorrow,
    I had not a thought concealed from her,
    & it is if I had lost a part of myself.
    I loved her only too well. . . ”
    Letter from Cassandra Austen to Fanny Knight
    Sunday, July 20, 1817
    “I watched the mournful little procession the length of the Street & when it turned from my sight & I had lost her forever . . .Never was a human being more sincerely mourned
    by those who attended her remains than was this dear creature.
    May the sorrow with which she is parted from
    on earth be a prognostic of the joy
    with which she is hailed in Heaven!”
    Letter from Cassandra Austen to Fanny Knight

    Ok – so it’s all about Jane Austen today. This day marks the 200th anniversary of her passing – way too soon at the age of 41. I will prob make you all tired of Jane posts through this next 12 hours or so. But it’s a big day – and she was a big genius. So indulge your Austen curiosity and learn about this amazing woman.

    From Sarah Emsley:
    When Winchester races first took their beginning
    It is said the good people forgot their old Saint
    Not applying at all for the leave of St Swithin
    And that William of Wykham’s approval was faint.
    – Jane Austen, 15 July 1817
    Text by:
    Maura Dooley
    Poet-in-Residence, 2014-15, Jane Austen’s House Museum. Her poems from the residency are published as A Quire of Paper
    In May 1817, exhausted from long months of illness, a wan Jane Austen arrived in Winchester, to be closer to her physician hoping for an improvement in her health. She did not recover and on 18 July 1817 died in her sister’s arms, as Cassandra describes movingly in a letter to their niece Fanny Knight, just a few days later.
    “She was the sun of my life, the gilder of every pleasure, the soother of every sorrow; I had not a thought concealed from her, and it is as if I had lost a part of myself.”
    As far as we know it was months since Jane Austen had been well enough to work on her new novel, Sanditon, yet, unable to resist a subject that made her smile, we have a poem written just days before she died.
    15 July 1817 was the day of the Winchester Races, a noisy, tumbling, raucous occasion of fashionable gambling and revelry – a grand day out, as Austen writes: “The Lords and the Ladies were satine’d and
    ermined”.
    15 July is also St Swithin’s Day. St Swithin, a 9th century bishop, patron saint of Winchester, is linked through long tradition to the idea that if it rains on his feast day, it will continue to rain for 40 days and nights. Jane Austen gives voice to a furious St Swithin: “These races and revels and dissolute measures/With which you’re debasing a neighbouring Plain/Let them stand – You shall meet with your curse in your pleasures/Set off for your course, I’ll pursue with my rain.”
    I looked up the weather for the summer of 1817; it was notably wet. The Austen family all wrote light verse, often as a parlour game. I imagine the sisters cooped up, above the wet, noisy street, losing themselves in the fun of creating this sweet and funny verse in those dark last days and it is some small consolation for the loss of such a fine writer, mischievous to the last.

    #JaneAusten200 isn’t over yet and I’m still revisiting favourite lines from her Manuscript Works.
    “I had not a notion of her being such a little Devil before;—she seemed to have all the Vernon milkiness.” Lady Susan
    “…just old enough to be formal, ungovernable & to have the Gout—too old to be agreeable, & too young to die.” Lady Susan
    “The more Wine I drink (in moderation) the better I am.” Sanditon
    “Cassandra smiled and whispered to herself ‘This is a day well spent.'” “The Beautifull Cassandra”
    And from my favourite novel, Pride and Prejudice: “I am only resolved to act in that manner, which will, in my own opinion, constitute my happiness, without reference to you, or to any person so wholly unconnected with me.”
    And “Perhaps I did not always love him so well as I do now. But in such cases as these, a good memory is unpardonable.”

    Today has been a rather melancholy and solemn day for me. When the anniversary of Austen’s death comes up every year, I rarely mark it on AustenBlog or anywhere else. To me, it’s not something to be celebrated. If Austen had lived her full threescore and ten or more, had written a couple dozen books, had lived a life long and full and successful, I think I would feel differently. [ 470 more words ]

    7/15 St Swithin’s Day

    From Sarah Emsley:
    When Winchester races first took their beginning
    It is said the good people forgot their old Saint
    Not applying at all for the leave of St Swithin
    And that William of Wykham’s approval was faint.
    – Jane Austen, 15 July 1817
    Text by:
    Maura Dooley
    Poet-in-Residence, 2014-15, Jane Austen’s House Museum. Her poems from the residency are published as A Quire of Paper
    In May 1817, exhausted from long months of illness, a wan Jane Austen arrived in Winchester, to be closer to her physician hoping for an improvement in her health. She did not recover and on 18 July 1817 died in her sister’s arms, as Cassandra describes movingly in a letter to their niece Fanny Knight, just a few days later.
    “She was the sun of my life, the gilder of every pleasure, the soother of every sorrow; I had not a thought concealed from her, and it is as if I had lost a part of myself.”
    As far as we know it was months since Jane Austen had been well enough to work on her new novel, Sanditon, yet, unable to resist a subject that made her smile, we have a poem written just days before she died.
    15 July 1817 was the day of the Winchester Races, a noisy, tumbling, raucous occasion of fashionable gambling and revelry – a grand day out, as Austen writes: “The Lords and the Ladies were satine’d and
    ermined”.
    15 July is also St Swithin’s Day. St Swithin, a 9th century bishop, patron saint of Winchester, is linked through long tradition to the idea that if it rains on his feast day, it will continue to rain for 40 days and nights. Jane Austen gives voice to a furious St Swithin: “These races and revels and dissolute measures/With which you’re debasing a neighbouring Plain/Let them stand – You shall meet with your curse in your pleasures/Set off for your course, I’ll pursue with my rain.”
    I looked up the weather for the summer of 1817; it was notably wet. The Austen family all wrote light verse, often as a parlour game. I imagine the sisters cooped up, above the wet, noisy street, losing themselves in the fun of creating this sweet and funny verse in those dark last days and it is some small consolation for the loss of such a fine writer, mischievous to the last.

    I am so excited to see the next chapter in the history of my family’s home.

    Chawton House Library have today launched a campaign to ‘reimagine and enhance the manor house in Chawton as it was familiar to Jane Austen in her own village’.

    Congratulations to Gillian Dow and the team at Chawton House Library for a fantastic vision and campaign.
