16 DECEMBER: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JANE!!!


It wouldn't be fair to neglect someone as important and dear to me as Jane,  Jane Austen , on her birthday. She was born on 16th December 1775 .I owe so many immensely pleasant moments just to her, to her talent and wit. I've "met" her when I was only 14, I read her Pride and Prejudice and, since then, her books have never left my bedside - table. Her Captain Wentworth and her Willoughby, her Darcy and her Mr Knightley have made me daydream; I have loved (and still am fond of) her heroines Emma, Lizzie, Marianne, Elinore, Lady Susan, Catherine Morland among the others.

I loved reading her novels, studying them at university and now I'm so glad and proud when I can teach about her or read her works  with my students! Jane has been a constant presence in my life so I just wanted to celebrate this unforgettable day in this little corner of mine in the blogosphere. You can find many posts on FLY HIGH dedicated to her and I think you'll find others from time to time: she's my favourite writer and a woman I highly appreciate and admire.

What a lovely tribute! I jump on other author's bandwagons and ride for awhile, but Austen will always be the brightest star for me.

I love your comparative analysis of all the classic works of literature that you enjoy, as well as the video clips and screen caps from all the corresponding adaptations. The ones from Austen are all especially well done! Thank you for sharing your celebration of Jane Austen with us!
