1/13 Lucky to have Jane week in review…

pg 254 “In drawing rooms up and down the country, there was a feeling that a young, personable queen of marriageable age must be in want of a husband.” Hahahahaha!

Found via All Things Jane Austen……

“The dialogue of Jane Austen’s men and women is so strikingly in character, what they say is at once so expressive of themselves and so material in forwarding the action, that although her stories are built on a structure which, solid as it is, contains very little incident, the idea of the theatre naturally rises in the mind when one is considering some of it.” -pg 237-238 “Jane Austen” by Elizabeth Jenkins

Oh what a Caroline!!!!

“Love and Friendship is perhaps the most remarkable of the extremely youthful pieces; but for sheer wit the first place is held by ‘The History of England, from the reign of Henry the 4th to the death of Charles the 1st, by a partial, prejudiced and ignorant historian’; the historian being aged fifteen.
It is not only that she succeeds, where a child almost never succeeds, in being genuinely witty; but besides having acquired a grasp if the subject itself, she shows in these short paragraphs applied to the various reigns a completely disillusioned attitude to the practice of writing history, at a time when, an ardent schoolgirl, she was passionately interested in the study of it.” -pg 30-31 “Jane Austen” by Elizabeth Jenkins

The Jane Austen Experience shared Sam Petherick’s photo:
“This would have been a view that Jane would have enjoyed on one of her walks”
