In Austenland

Terminato ieri sera, verso mezzanotte, Pride and Prejudice, mi trovo ora ben installato in Austenland. Spero che mi facciano almeno sindaco.

"Austen, Lewes argued, was “the greatest artist that has ever written, using the term to signify the most perfect mastery over the means to her end.”"


"(There can be few writers of long-form journalism who have not sought to emulate Austen’s perfect, ironic snap.) "

WITHOUT AUSTEN, NO ELIOT, di Rebecca Mead, The New Yorker, 29 gennaio 2013.

  1. I'm a little embarrassed, I didn't remember, or may be, know, the fantastic story about George Eliot and Lewes...
    It has been fun and very interesting reading about it...and reflecting once more on our amazing life in this world.
