A Very Austen Weekend
I went on a huge Jane Austen kick this week- end, watching no fewer than three different versions of Persuasion and the Emma Thompson version of Sense & Sensibility with Thompson's comments and the second half of the Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice as well as Becoming Jane Austen.
Actually, it started Thursday, while I was home sick for two days, so it wasn't quite as concen- trated as it sounded at first. Still, it was a lot of Jane Austen =)
On top of all that, I had such cabin fever yesterday, that I took a drive up to the North Shore (Manchester-by-the-Sea, Magnolia, Gloucester, Rockport) and found myself going right back in time.
See if you don't agree with the similarities between Gloucester, MA and Lyme, England (setting for Persuasion).
