I feel certain that Mr. Elliot is the Wickham of this story, but I am still rooting for Anne to get with him.

I liked Persuasion more each time I reread it, and for a school comparative essay nonetheless. That was a first for me.
I don’t know what’s going on with my brain, but it aint happening. I really wanted to be doe with this by the time City of Heavenly Fire comes out.
Maybe I’ll pick up over the weekend…….
Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg should have done a version of Jane Austen’s Persuasion in the 70s.
This is what Frederick Wentworth writes to Anne, the woman he loves, eight years after she refused him:
“I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. You alone have brought me to Bath. For you alone, I think and plan.”

My copy of Persuasion has the original two chapters that conclude the ending of the original work, chapters 10 and 11, in the back of the book. The story that is in this book ends with chapters 21 and 22. So do I replace chapters 21 and 22 with the original chapters, chapters 10 and 11? Or what do I do? I don’t really understand. I think the numbers throw me off. What does your copy of Persuasion have?

Persuasion by MadMonaLisa
Does anyone know when did Pride and Prejudice became THE Austen novel? I feel like Sense and Sensibility and Persuasion are so superior to it in so many ways, especially Persuasion. Is it Mr. Darcy?
It’s Mr. Darcy, isn’t it?
I just want an amazing Persuasion adaptation, I guess. 1995BBC!P&P or EmmaTopmson!S&S’ treatment.
…the remarkable situation of the town, the principal street almost hurrying into the water, the walk to the Cobb, skirting round the pleasant little bay, which in the season is animated with bathing-machines and company; the Cobb itself, its old wonders and new improvements, with the very beautiful line of cliffs stretching out to the east of the town, are what the stranger’s eye will seek; and a very strange stranger it must be, who does not see charms in the immediate environs of Lyme, to make him wish to know it better.
…these places must be visited, and visited again to make the worth of Lyme understood.

These sweet little Book Purses are not made with old books covers, I couldn’t bear the thought of strapping a book of its pages. The cover is made from classic book covers and my own book designs, all printed on cotton fabric and binded, as a normal book would be. It’s finished with golden metal corners to embellish and protect the clutch.
