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.
