in consequence of the missive, Not exactly a review...and a few reviews, penned by Margaret C
I just had to share these quotes from the Quarterly Review:
"Her heroines are what one knows women must be, though one never can get them to acknowledge it." Ha! Snarky. I love it.
"'Persuasion'...possesses that superiority which might be expected from the more mature age at which it was written, and is second, we think, to none of the former ones, if not superior to all." It's my favorite, so I agree.
"The second daughter, Anne, who is the heroine, and the only one of the family possessed of good sense, (a quality which Miss Austen is a sparing in her novels, as we fear her great mistress, Nature, has been in real life)" So true! Ha!
Persuasion is maintained by Cheryl with WebBBS 3.21.
