Attention Jane Austen Fans
For those of you who love Jane Austen, I thought I would share a website that I love to spend time looking around on. There are so many interesting discussions taking place, links to Regency Period group and activities, books etc...
In the fall I will be teaching a Jane Austen class for 20 weeks. We will read and discuss "Pride and Prejudice" as well as learn to do handwork, sketch, and drink tea. We will also learn to dance some of the English Country Dances. We are going to have so much fun!
This website has be so helpful to me in planning for my class.
And just for the record, my favorite movie version is the one starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. The most recent movie starring Keira Knightly was ok, but I thought it was modernized way too much. I simply cannot see Elizabeth saying to Fitzwilliam Darcy that he could call her "goddess divine!"
I hope you enjoy the website!
