“Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to restore everybody not greatly in fault themselves to tolerable comfort, and to have done with all the rest.”
- Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
A new anniversary! What fun! Jane Austen's most controversial novel comes to its 200th birthday this year. Mansfield fans, now is the time to start discussions in the notes, and challengers of Fanny Price may also leave their comments in the notes. Very excited to see what is going to happen! The JASNA conference this year (for those in JASNA) is based on Mansfield and will take place in Montréal .
(and on a more personal note; if anyone is interested, my novel has just been published through a traditional publisher. I'm no Austen, but if you are interested, follow the link www.amazon.com/The-Gate-Memori… It is also in Barnes & Noble's online store)
