Happy 20th Bday P&P 1995(swimming in a sea of love?)

Jane Austen’s Elegant But Dumb Ladies
by Rachel Lawrence
A character type that appears throughout Jane Austen’s writing is a very polite lady who is all surface correctness but little substance. It is a type that may be called Elegant but Dumb. The Elegant but Dumb lady has correct manners and is very civil, but she is not bright, and is sometimes even anti-intellectual. She is also self-centered, and manages to get her own way in the end. Despite these faults, she is at least distinguishable from the Lady Catherine types (such as Lady Greville and Mrs. Ferrars) by her absence of malice…..

I highly enjoyed this collection of stories! -Kirk

Happy 20th Bday P&P 1995!! Sadly, I love the Titanic Love Theme and I love it in this P&P 1995 tribute video! -Kirk

Can’t believe my little blog and I have been together so long! It has been 6 wonderful years of reading, reviewing, working with authors, and connecting with Janeites!
