Top 10 Goofs in Persuasion (1971)

I confess that finding time to watch this four-hour television series a couple of times has been a challenge with the holiday season upon us, but it was an enjoyable diversion. After I got past the quirks and limitations introduced by reason of the decade in which it was filmed, I found this adaptation, which… more goodness …

I have debated over the last couple of weeks the nature of this post. Christmas? Something else? A mix? I finally decided we have had enough Christmas (at least, I have, for my decorations are up, presents wrapped, and the anticipation is waning).

Giving Thanks with Austen

Giving Thanks with Austen

With my regularly scheduled blog appearing this year on Thanksgiving, I wondered whether there was any formal giving of thanks in Jane Austen’s work. The November U.S. holiday has spread to most of the Americas. The English have a more general harvest-related tradition of providing bread and other food to the poor, often through the… more goodness …

Talking Points for Pride and Prejudice

Talking Points for Pride and Prejudice

I’ve had two more sessions of my book club that looks exclusively at Jane Austen’s novels. I’m including my talking points for the first of them, Pride and Prejudice. As an aside, no controversy arose over the overall perception of the novel. Everyone liked it. Here are the talking points I gave to the participants… more goodness …
