      Much of the plot hinges on the fact that Georgina must write a , word book in the style of Jane Austen within a few months. The problem?

What is known of the writing habits of Jane Austen, the beloved author, is simple and fascinating.

It was there that she wrote Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion.. Jane would try to write every day, close to a window for the.

    OK, let’s go on to Persuasion.. Persuasion is really the best of the Jane Austen many people have pointed out, it’s different in tone from any of the others. It makes you realise that Austen was writing in the early 19th century, right along with people like Wordsworth and Coleridge, and that she was capable of having and expressing the same kinds of feeling.   When the Bronte's were kicked to the curb for Jane Austen, I realilzed that there is a class of people today who would fit quite easily or maybe perfectly in a Jane Austen novel given the magical chance. So, shallow and senseless and prejudicial and snobby are still honored by all the Jane Austen clubs across the entire United States.
