QUESTION Austin fans: can someone recommend an edition with a grad course worthy Introduction or analysis? It‘s going to be one of the reading selections in my next HUMA course.

I hope I like it better the 2nd time around. I was in my early 20s when I first read it and didn‘t care for the MC. 😳 Hoping age will help me appreciate her more.

8little_paws I appreciate the doofy looking guy in this painting 😂 1mo
Tamra @8little_paws 😆 I didn‘t even notice. 1mo
ravenlee Norton Critical Editions are good for this. There‘s also a Cambridge Companion to Jane Austen, which has some interesting essays but they‘re not specific to each work, more specific topics within the books or synthesis between then. 1mo

Austen is a slow burn for me, but I'm glad I persisted. She cloaks a lot of subversive social commentary (even by today's standards) in the mores of her time: wealth and power corrupt, the family unit is symbolically powerful but ultimately ineffectual, and marriage is about community, not romance. There's very little in her books about romantic love, really. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/pride-and-prejudice-jane-austen/

While heeding the siren call of two authors raving about a book and going to the bookstore to get it, I was able to exert enough willpower to resist getting these Penguin Classics Deluxe Editions. It was hard...and I may have only delayed the inevitable...but I left them on the shelves. That being said, these are gorgeous covers!

#RedRoseSeptember
In all my years of singing #Tubthumping loudly & off-key whenever it played on the radio, I never looked up the definition. After learning it means “expressing opinions in a loud and violent or dramatic manner” I just couldn‘t help thinking of Lady Catherine de Bourgh who had not only her share but many others‘ share in the conversation. She definitely did plenty of tubthumping! 😆

Has anyone else pre-ordered the beautiful ‘Season Editions - Winter‘ books from Thomas Nelson? In addition to the tagged book, the Winter series is comprised of Wuthering Heights (also pre-ordered), A Tale of Two Cities, and Little Women (the latter two I recommend my husband to pre-order for me and give as Christmas presents 😂). Each book will be a numbered edition, and only 10,000 will be printed.

sprainedbrain @jenniferajanes the miniseries from 1995 with Colin Firth is very good... it‘s almost 6 hrs long and pretty true to the book. I also love the 2005 movie with Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen (my personal favorite Darcy). 😍 2mo
