Don't know that he deserves it

Laraine 03/19/2011 07:24PM

TimLee 03/19/2011 12:06PM

Lisa Dalrymple 03/19/2011 07:44AM

The Dedication of "Emma"

Jane Marie 03/18/2011 04:54AM

A Novel of the Day

Jane Marie 03/19/2011 08:36AM

No, your first view was right

Kathleen Glancy 03/18/2011 11:17AM

Emma dedication

Bridget D 03/19/2011 05:40AM

If dedicating the book to him provoked her satire of him, no

Tarn 03/19/2011 11:22AM

Except that

Kathleen Glancy 03/19/2011 01:53PM


Bridget D 03/19/2011 04:09PM

Good point. (nfm)

Tarn 03/19/2011 02:06PM

Whoops - by "later" I meant in subsequent correspondenc

Kathleen Glancy 03/18/2011 12:26PM

I think Austen threw in a few references to the Prince

Nina RG 03/18/2011 06:33AM

How much of the Prince is in "Emma"?

Bridget D 03/18/2011 05:30AM

Harriet's secret parentage may be a sly reference...

Anne-Marie 03/18/2011 09:45AM


Bridget D 03/18/2011 04:36PM

I think it might

Tarn 03/18/2011 12:12PM

Of course!

Lisa Dalrymple 03/18/2011 03:31PM

LOL! Although

Tarn 03/18/2011 04:36PM

I need a ~suth~

Lisa Dalrymple 03/18/2011 05:23PM

I don't think so

Kathleen Glancy 03/18/2011 10:36AM

Poetry contest winner!

Stephanie 03/17/2011 04:15PM

Peace and Harmony

BarbaraB 03/17/2011 03:16PM

I forgot to mention the Box Hill picnic

BarbaraB 03/19/2011 12:24AM

Now, nearing the end, the joy of "projecting" begins!

jeffrey 03/17/2011 02:13PM

That's a lovely projection, but....

Reeba 03/17/2011 04:24PM

To answer that, I look at the last paragraph of Ch 55...

jeffrey 03/18/2011 07:39AM

[They looked j]ust as they always do -- very vulgar.

Stephanie 03/19/2011 05:55PM

Mrs. Elton as patroness

Anne-Marie 03/17/2011 04:58PM

at Highbury

Nikki N 03/18/2011 12:06AM

An excellent thought

Kathleen Glancy 03/18/2011 11:32AM

Mrs Elton

Bridget D 03/19/2011 04:51AM

Chapter 53 - does anyone believe Mr Elton?

Kathleen Glancy 03/16/2011 01:26PM

Mr. Elton shows his true colors

Anne-Marie 03/16/2011 03:38PM

Mr Elton's expectations

Nikki N 03/16/2011 10:18PM

That is an interesting thought

Kathleen Glancy 03/17/2011 09:51AM

Running Hartfield IS work - Mr. Knightley does it now. nfm

Stephanie 03/19/2011 05:40PM


Bridget D 03/20/2011 05:33AM

the John Knightleys and Hartfield

Nikki N 03/17/2011 11:07PM

I see. Though I think weekends would be out too.

Kathleen Glancy 03/18/2011 10:18AM

It took 2.5 hours by stage coach

Tarn 03/18/2011 03:13PM

Stage coaches were atypical, as you say

Kathleen Glancy 03/19/2011 08:05PM


Bridget D 03/20/2011 05:30AM

I agree that he never thought that far ahead

Tom P2 03/16/2011 04:11PM

Rather he tahn I

Bridget D 03/16/2011 01:52PM

No, it was Mr Elton - Mrs Elton did also comment

Kathleen Glancy 03/16/2011 02:06PM


Bridget D 03/17/2011 08:45AM

What, or who, does this "living together" refer to?

Nina RG 03/16/2011 02:24PM

Thanks! Now that little detail won't bother me any moresmiling smiley (NFM)

Nina RG 03/17/2011 06:05AM

Living together with the wife's family

Ramya 03/16/2011 02:40PM

I agree it is not customary for hubby and wifey to

jeffrey 03/16/2011 02:49PM


Bridget D 03/16/2011 02:43PM

Liviing togehter

Bridget D 03/16/2011 02:39PM

And to finally have to be married by that guy! Groan. (NFM)

jeffrey 03/16/2011 01:39PM

I have actually wondered why

Kathleen Glancy 03/16/2011 02:01PM

'Caro Sposo', JA's characterization of Mrs. E.

BarbaraB 03/17/2011 01:51PM

Here's the first edition (1816) of "Emma"

Graciela 03/17/2011 08:55PM

A little further info on use of the term/s

BarbaraB 03/17/2011 08:34PM

In both ...

gianni 03/17/2011 06:51PM

Yes, I've written about it in my comment below. nfm

Reeba 03/17/2011 07:19PM

The Pemberley Pop Up is based on

Christopher 03/17/2011 07:18PM

It is "caro sposo" in The Oxford Illustrated

Christopher 03/17/2011 04:29PM

Thank you Barbara. Delicious information smiling smiley

Reeba 03/17/2011 04:18PM

That is so interesting!

Ramya 03/17/2011 02:07PM

I don't have anything to back this up...

Annalise 03/16/2011 02:25PM


Bridget D 03/16/2011 02:41PM

Ch 55, last paragraph: Mrs Elton's final put-down (NFM)

jeffrey 03/16/2011 02:39PM

Chapters 50 and 52 - exactly what did Emma say to Harriet?

Kathleen Glancy 03/16/2011 12:46PM

I think she told Harriet about the engagement

Ramya 03/16/2011 04:16PM

Agree completely.

Annalise 03/18/2011 12:41AM

I think she must have....

Reeba 03/16/2011 04:06PM

But surely Emma would want to avoid any implication

Kathleen Glancy 03/17/2011 10:10AM

The "other woman" wouldn't have to be from Highbury,

Graciela 03/17/2011 01:17PM

But another woman

Nikki N 03/17/2011 11:24PM

These are good arguments

Kathleen Glancy 03/18/2011 11:37AM

... and they all lived happily ever after.

Lisa Dalrymple 03/16/2011 12:33PM

Unfortunately for Jane ...

Graciela 03/17/2011 04:05PM

There are many...

Reeba 03/16/2011 04:11PM

Well, the Westons did have to wait

Kathleen Glancy 03/16/2011 01:03PM


Bridget D 03/19/2011 10:53AM

It's a very reasonable theory.

Reeba 03/16/2011 05:28AM
