Jane Austen Things

“Indeed, his manly beauty and more than common gracefulness were instantly the theme of my intense admiration. His person and air were equal to what my fancy had ever drawn for the hero of a favourite story; and in his stopping the course of the van with one cold hand when he had a moment before been standing across the park, there was a rapidity of movement which particularly recommended him to me. Every circumstance belonging to him was interesting. His name was good, his skin colour matched my favourite blouse, and I soon found out that of all manly hair colours, bronze was the most becoming.”

Very funny and very clever!

  • There is some Austen Adaptation Trivia at becomingjane.blogspot.com.  For example. did you know that “the Jane Austen Society actually opposed the casting of Hugh Grant as Edward Ferrars and actually contacted the producers to make a complaint. The reasoning was that Hugh Grant was too handsome to be our Edward Ferrars…..?!”
  • A survey of Janeites has been conducted by JASNA and the results are available here
