If you please, who was Fordyce, and what were his sermons about? I've just finished writing a book review of P&P for British Lit. I'm pretending I'm on the "Bath Beacon" and the year is 1813. I tried to use the most authentic language possible in a 500 word essay (and in JA's time they used so many words to express even the shortest of ideas!) and to seem more modern, I stuck in a reference to Fordyce's Sermons. Quote: "When you tire of Fordyce's Sermons, add P&P to your library." I suspect we will be asked to read our papers aloud and I want to be able to answer questions on this subject. Can someone help? Thanks.
