It might be time for “March Madness,” but over here we are celebrating “Jane Austen Madness!!” We have put together a bracket full of 64 of Jane Austen’s characters, matched up randomly.

Use the link below to fill out a bracket, picking your favorite character in each pairing until you reach a favorite champion. Click on a pairing if you can’t remember who someone is. The bracket will be open from 3/15/18-4/2/18 so you have some time to fill it out. You may vote more than once (if you care to!).

Please feel free to share the link and invite your fellow Janeites from near and far to participate. The more the merrier!

If you have questions about specific characters or how to fill out the bracket, please comment below or send us a message! We will post reminders to vote every so often.

Happy Jane Austen Madness!!
