Literature appreciation in the 21st century
I love Jane Austen’s novels. She is such a brilliant author and probably one of the most insightful social commentators of her day.
I also love the various television adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels, many of which are the product of or associated with the BBC. Gotta love the Beeb. I love the detail of the costumes and the seemingly unselfconscious way in which the actors move in them, despite how different they are from modern day dress.
I love the beautiful English countryside and country homes that are used to such great effect in each adaption.
But, perhaps most of all, I adore the dashing heroes …
I mean, what man doesn’t look good in period costume? Don’t you agree??
