Jane Austen 200 years ago (18 July) and today (17 July)
First there is this.
And there is this:
After too many postponements, I am prepared now to read (and in several cases reread) Jane Austen's novels, and I begin this evening, one day before the 200th anniversary of her death.
I begin at the beginning with Sense and Sensibility even though three other novels are contenders for my favorite. I will say more about my favorite(s) in future postings. As a matter of fact, the next several weeks here will be all about Jane Austen and her novels. Perhaps you will also be reading something by Austen.
Now, though, I invite you to tell me about your favorites by Miss Austen.
