“Candles will dance and we will sing…”-Sarah McLachlan Week in review….#102?

“The nineteenth-century novelist Margaret Oliphant opined that ‘Catherine Morland, with all her enthusiasm and her mistakes, her modest tenderness and right feeling, and the fine instinct which runs through her simplicity, is the most captivating picture of a very young girl which fiction, perhaps, has ever furnished.’ What makes this picture possible is Jane Austen’s willingness to present the full, unvarnished reality of her heroine’s innocence and eagerness, with no attempt to impute to her any wisdom beyond her years or to disguise her frequent descents into folly”. -“The Annotated Northanger Abbey” Annotated and Edited, with an Introduction, by David M. Shapard
