In response to dialogue, written by Kate on October 15, 1997 at 20:52:46
I'm not talking about sappy or stupid dialogue, I'm talking about people talking in ways they would NEVER talk in real life.
Jane Austen's prose is beautiful, but I can handle a little purple prose. The Victorians were like that and they did speak and write like that (to an extent obviously).
