– Post it.

This is from All Roads Lead to Austen: A Yearlong Journey with Jane by Amy Elizabeth Smith. It’s the July book I may not finish, but this discussion on Sense & Sensibility makes me eager to get into it further, especially after just finishing the Joanna Trollope’s version for The Austen Project.

“Austen’s narrative style is distant, but the characters communicate their world. The physical world of the novel isn’t very concrete, but there’s an internal world you enter… The whole world of the novel is very rigid, very closed. The richness of it all for me is the analysis Austen provides of their feelings.”
