Ok, I admit it!… I cannot keep up with it all!…but just in case others of you want to know what’s actually going on in cyberspace but don’t have the time to search it out each day…here is a sampling!… Jane is indeed, everywhere!
As “Miss Austen Regrets” recently aired in the U.K., there have been numerous postings about it all over again…here are a few: Guardian online, several other links to articles in the U.K., and at Jane Austen’s World (where there are a few posts on the movie) And I remind you to look again at the article on the JASNA site about the kernels of truth in the story…
And check out the Conversation Blog on the Jane Austen Addict site to learn about The Jane Austen – MI-5 connection: now I LOVE seeing this in writing…there are SO many connections to one of my favorite shows, MI-5 (Spooks in the U.K.) and the Austen adaptations that my head has been spinning for weeks! Thank you Ms. Rigler for putting this all together so well!
On the Becoming Jane Fansite, there is a post on Favorite movies and books…always fun to read someone else’s opinions… and also scroll down for a great interview with Andrew Davies done with Masterpiece Theatre (and I too don’t agree with him about the P&P 1995 2nd proposal scene…this I think was perfectly done, exactly as Austen wrote it….not any words…and we were not privy to the passion….)
Ms. Place, as always, has penned a great article on Drinking tea, wine, and other spirits in Jane Austen’s Day. And while you are there…look at her story from a few days ago about the Wedding Procession in the 1995 S&S. And on her Jane Austen Today Blog, there is a great post on Fashionable Websites Jane Austen Would have liked to Visit! THANK YOU Ms. Place for sharing your ever-interesting wealth of information!
On Austenblog there is a book giveaway contest…submit by May 2.
And Jane Odiwe writes of Fanny Price’s room in Mansfield Park, with some lovely drawings.
And over on Austenprose Laurel Ann gives us 10 top (and very humorous) reasons to re-read Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict (it is being released in paperback…) [For a nice new review of Confessions go to the Historical Fiction site ]
and I am sure this is not the half of it…. yikes!
