Your Sunday Austen MeditationMagschurch_of_austenology

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 04:00:51 +0000

Today’s lesson comes from the Book of Northanger Abbey, Volume I, Chapter I, and yes, we know that the last lesson came from that book, too, but it just all works for us right now. It will be a very short lesson this week. Mrs. Morland was a very good woman, and wished to see…

Today’s lesson is from the book of Northanger Abbey, in which Catherine experiences a windy night and a loss of her light source. Right now we are feeling this passage most sincerely, as AustenBlog World Headquarters had no power on Friday night, and not even a cheerful fire to comfort us. The dimness of the…

The year rolls round to its end once again, and once again we are celebrating the birthday of Jane Austen. It is our tradition to write about what we would give Jane Austen for her birthday, but we don’t think we could top two pretty amazing things given to her by the world.  First of…

Pride and Prejudice to Be Adapted by Poldark Producers for ITVMags

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 13:10:27 +0000

It’s been twelve years. We suppose it’s time for something new for everyone to fight over. Also, none of those pesky royalties to pay. PROFIT! The producer, which also makes ITV smash hit Victoria starring Jenna Coleman, has commissioned acclaimed playwright Nina Raine – author of 2017 hit National Theatre play Consent – to adapt…

REVIEW: The Jane Austen Project by Kathleen A. FlynnMagsja-project-cover

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 04:51:56 +0000

This year we commemorate Jane Austen’s death. We certainly do not celebrate it. We feel a sense of unfairness about it, not only for our selfish sake–for being cheated out of, based on the lifespan of her parents and most of her siblings, thirty or forty years’ worth of Jane Austen novels–but naturally for Jane’s…

By Jeff Kubina (Maryland Renaissance Festival) [CC BY-SA 2.0], via Wikimedia Commons A couple of weeks ago we were having lunch, and had brought the book we were reading, Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld. A co-worker joined us, and asked what we were reading.  Editrix: It’s a modern-set retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Co-worker:…

It’s Jane Austen’s 241st birthday today. Please be upstanding and lift your beverage of choice in a toast to an authoress whose work has endured for two centuries after her death. That is an accomplishment indeed. It is our custom for birthday posts to imagine a gift that we would like to give Jane for her birthday. It’s…
