In reply to Lady Susan -- try reading out loud posted by JacqueJ on July 22, 1997 at 07:43:22
] I mast confess at this early point I don't like Lady Susan much as a person.
I must confess that I find her deliciously evil -- as a character, I enjoy that. (As a person, I do not!)
] But for some reason, I find her much funnier if I read the text out loud. Give it a try!
Great suggestion! I find that reading the text out loud gives me a greater appreciation for the language JA is using. It's also good practice for keeping my speaking voice from getting "flabby" -- my lazy conversational tendencies jumped out at me when I started reading "Lady Susan" out loud.
