ジェーン・オーステン Persuasion

Wednesday Treat

Excerpt from Persuasion by Jane Austen

If you are familiar with the popular TV series Downton Abbey, you'll find there are many pararells between the premises of the TV drama and this classic novel by Jane Austen. Both are about a nobleman with no son and three daughters; he seeks out a distant relative to make him the heir apparent, only to find out that the ungrateful wretch chooses to marry not the nobleman's eldest daughter as hoped, but someone else entirely. The second eldest daughter is unattractive and withdrawn, and the youngest gets married beneath her social status. Mmm, perhaps I should read the entire book to see where this is going...
