BBC’s Pride and Prejudice (1995)
“Oh! to be sure, it is always incomprehensible to a man that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage. A man always imagines a woman to be ready for anybody who asks her.”
Jane Austen, Collected Works
My characters shall have, after a little trouble, all that they desire.
The Book Junkie- Northanger Abbey
I just want to post this because I don’t understand why her videos don’t get more views? Good quality, good info, cute lady. What more do you need?
We read Northanger Abbey in my beyond gothic lit class, but I would much have preferred to learn about it from Ron. I don’t even remember the part about Austen speaking to the audience in the novel? How did I miss that? Why wasn’t that discussed in class? (for anyone who took that class with me, aka Alex, did we discuss it in class and I just missed it?)
This is so so sweet! I’m so glad you liked the video! The “Jane Defends the Novel” Part is quoted here, 3rd from the top! http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Northanger_Abbey
And again thanks, this is really nice! :)
“Miss Morland, no one can think more highly of the understanding of women than I do. In my opinion, nature has given them so much that they never find it necessary to use more than half.” - Henry Tilney, Northanger Abbey, Ch 14.
