In the fall our thoughts naturally turn to Marianne Dashwood.
“Oh,” cried Marianne, “with what transporting sensation have I formerly seen them [leaves] fall! How have I delighted, as I walked, to see them driven in showers about me by the wind! What feelings have they, the season, the air altogether inspired! Now there is no one to regard them. They are seen only as a nuisance, swept hastily off, and driven as much as possible from the sight.”
“It is not every one,” said Elinor, “who has your passion for dead leaves.”

Lol, I always think of this quote when visiting a certain very large city south of Boston…..


“Here I am once more in this scene of dissipation and vice, and I begin already to find my morals corrupted.”
— Jane Austen in a letter (August 1796) on arriving in London


…Elizabeth non disse nulla, ma ne fu estremamente gratificata; il complimento era sicuramente tutto per lei. Il suo stupore, tuttavia, era grandissimo, e si andava continuamente ripetendo, “Perché è così cambiato? A che cosa è dovuto? Non… See More

I love that the great Margaret C. Sullivan’s new book “Jane Austen Cover to Cover” is first on the list! Alas, the photo doesn’t pop up first. So, have to go with the cat photo.

Jane Austen and Classical Music
http://www.classicfm.com
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen enjoyed music. She played the piano every day, compiled her own albums of sheet music, and danced when others played. And music plays an important role in her novels and movie adaptations of her books.

Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury. 1875.
J. Keats
CCLV. Ode to Autumn
SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, 5
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease; 10
For Summer has o’erbrimm’d their clammy cells.
Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor,
Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind; 15
Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,
Drowsed with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
Spares the next swath and all its twinèd flowers:
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
Steady thy laden head across a brook; 20
Or by a cyder-press, with patient look,
Thou watchest the last oozings, hours by hours.
Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,—
While barrèd clouds bloom the soft-dying day 25
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
Among the river-sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn; 30
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The redbreast whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.


Ahhctober’s photo.
With Jennifer Walker Nichols and 10 others.

“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
