I cannot fix on the hour, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that after 200 years, Jane Austen and her novels have not weakened their grasp on our imaginations or our minds. In fact, we can’t get enough of them. Whether we read, watch, or listen to them, Austen’s works continue to give us, lizzyandjane, something to laugh, cry, argue about or sigh over. She gives us a way to experience our world, And we want to share that with you.
By “that” we mean a number of things, from academic close-readings of delicious passages from Austen’s works, to classic arguments about divine or offensive casting choices, to our favourite pieces of fanfic, and everything in between.
Welcome to the conversation!
