in consequence of the missive, JA and Fanny Burney, penned by Line
now I have to wonder WHY did Jane Austen include so many references to Fanny Burney's work? Is JA simply an admiring fan paying homage? Is she trying to improve on some of FB's lines? IS JA referencing something particular in FB's works that I might get had I read them?
Fascinating to think about. Thank you, Line, for introducing this topic!
