July 18, 1817 Part one(?)

JASNA – North Texas
Jane Austen
December 16, 1775 – July 18, 1817
“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
Tuesday, July 29, 1817

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
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 ]
Thank You, Jane
