“...we may indeed assume, with a high degree of probability, that Jane Austen went commando.”
Margaret C. Sullivan, The Jane Austen Handbook: A Sensible Yet Elegant Guide to Her World
“How to explain the sheer tingling joy one experiences when two interesting, complex, and occasionally aggravating characters have at last settled their misunderstandings and will live happily ever after, no matter what travails life might throw in their path, because Jane Austen said they will, and that's that? How to describe the exhilaration of being caught up in an unknown but glamorous world of balls and gowns and rides in open carriages with handsome young men? How to explain that the best part of Jane Austen's world is that sudden recognition that the characters are just like you?”
