In response to Venetia, written by Carol on September 22, 1998 at 01:16:54
] There is a very short snippet from P&P in the last chapter of Venetia. Venetia, the main character, uses the phrase,"a consummation devoutly to be wished!", and it is typeset in itallics.
] In re-reading this, I'm not sure it makes sense.....
...but that quote is from Hamlet's "To be or not to be" soliquoy. Hope I'm remembering this correctly...
To die, to sleep, no more.
And by a sleep to say we end the heartache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to.
Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished!
To die, to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream.
Ay! There's the rub!
(Thank you Ms Phoenix for making me memorize Shakespeare all those years ago! ;-)
