If you scroll down a little on the sidebar, you’ll note that I have a poll for your favorite Jane Austen hero.
Strangely, Henry Tilney is winning by a landslide. I find this a little suspect, frankly, given the strength of the competition, particularly Mr. Knightley (“If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more”) and Captain Wentworth (“I must learn to brook being happier than I deserve”). Not to mention Mr. Darcy, whose cinematic bare-chest scene brought so many women so much joy. So if you haven’t voted already, please make your voice heard!
