In concurrence with the 200th year anniversary of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, here at Farncombe we are feeling nostalgic as we remember some of our favorite literature classic heroes and how they inspired us.
From the Bronte sisters’ brooding Heathcliff and defiant and strong willed Jane Eye to Dickens' sweet Pip, we all have a soft spot for one of those 19th Century characters, especially Austens’ own iconic Mr Darcy.
Although we will forever remember Colin Firth as the delectable Darcy in the film adaptation, Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and its characters, in their own right can never be forgotten.
Here at Farncombe we are still hosting two events this autumn to celebrate and to capture the essence of Austen as a writer and what inspired her to write the classic and beloved Pride and Prejudice.
Jane Austen’s Library- Reading 18th Century course taking place 6th September until 8th September looks at some of the novels that provided inspiration behind her work to give an insightful look at her as a writer.
“You must learn some of my philosophy. Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure.”
