Strap on your bonnets and round up your chaperones! Starting with Persuasion, PBS will screen all 6 Austen novels over the next 12 weeks. At least two of the productions will be new. I’m not sure which of the older productions we’ll be seeing. Apart from Mansfield Park (which I never liked), I’m looking forward to seeing the others again.
A (male) friend of mine once referred to any male character in a Jane Austen novel as ‘Mr. Will-o-Wispy.’ I think this is hilarious, and try to figure out which one is Mr. Will-o-Wispy in every story. Mr. Bingley in Pride & Prejudice. Mr. Willoughby in Sense & Sensibility. Anyone have suggestions for Northanger Abbey or Emma?.
