“Jane Austen on Love and Romance” edited by Constance Moore
If you’ve ever been intrigued by the romance of Jane Austen’s novels, you’ll simply adore this collection of short extracts about love, marriage and her characters happily-ever-afters.
On the rocky road to true love, most of us have come across some of Austen’s well-known characters, including caddish Mr Wickham’s and aloof Mr Darcy’s.
This collection of quotations, illustrations and extracts emphasise how the observations of love in her novels are just as pertinent today as they were 200 years ago.
The beautifully written extracts are separated into themes ranging from Dress to Impress, Falling in Love, Marriage, Breaking Up and Unrequited Love.
Accompanied by illustrations from Hugh Thompson, C.E Brock and H.M Brock to demonstrate cultural explanations of matters of the heart.
‘There is no charm equal to tenderness of the heart.’ Emma Woodhouse, from Emma.
