I cite this radio adaptation of Mansfield Park as “the luck of Mansfield Park!!!” Can you imagine how many people would watch this if it had been a TV adaptation????? Poor Mansfield Park!!!!…/listen-up-benedict-cumberba…/

From A Contrary Wind:
“So I ran the first 500 words of Mansfield Park through “ProWritingAid.” Jane Austen got top marks for spelling for flunked on style. Too wordy.”

    And by the way, several hundred of my Jane Austen tour photos are still up on my smugmug site, including the Steventon/Chawton/Winchester are here:


    (In 2008, I signed up for a day-long tour of Austen country and although I was the only one signed up, the wonderful tour guide gave me a private 8hour tour and even extended it by an hour to take me to her grave and memorial at Winchester cathedral. Then I spent a week at a variety of estates related to Pride and Prejudice and all the P&P films, and ended with a Jane Austen festival in Bath. Wonderful experience, as long as don’t catch the flu on your plane flight over — which unfortunately I did!)
