Well, after I outed myself last night by admitting on Facebook that I had never made it all the way through a Jane Austin novel, my cousin Lenita Virtue shamed me into giving her another chance. I guess it is rather ridiculous that someone who will read almost everything from cereal boxes to fine print in contracts doesn’t know Austin’s iconic characters by heart.
So after taking a “What Jane Austin heroine are you?” quiz and being tagged as Catherine Morland, I visited the library today to check out Northanger Abbey and started reading about her. Since the volume I chose was a “Norton Critical Edition”, today’s selection was Susan Fraiman’s introduction. Tonight I will get started on the novel itself.
I’ll let you know what I think later.
