“Jane Austen´s world wasn´t a large one, but she used it to make observations of human behavior that are as true today as they were then. She speaks to women in a way that perhaps men will never understand fully, wich is rather wonderful. She only wrote of her direct experience. And because she used, to a large degree, comic observation it makes her much more accesible that most classic writers.”

He’s been a fool, about Jane… about so many other things. But then so have I.
He and I are so similar. We’re both so stubborn.

clear as day: A note on stories →
I get so many wonderful messages telling me what The Lizzie Bennet Diaries has meant to people. They often include telling me that they’ve been going through a hard thing - a big change in their lives, a loved one’s illness, depression - and that The LBD has been a source…
This is very very lovely. It is the way I see popular culture and fiction and I hold Darcy and Elizabeth and the Bennet family close to my heart because of what they’ve meant to me since I was 12 years old. I never see passion and love for fiction as a bad thing nor do I let anyone tell me otherwise because stories are what keeps our minds sharp and creative and when we feel down or alone or worried then they can be the biggest comfort there is.
“You can’t ask for a better part than Elizabeth Bennet. So if you give an actress who is even remotely good the chance to play a fantastic character like that, they are going to revel in it. They really are.”
