This week I'm reading: Jane Austen, the Secret Radical by Helena Kelly
England in April. Even here, in Southampton, in a town full of soldiers and sailors, in a country at war, April is still April.
On Page 56:
Henry Tilney is highly educated, highly literate, a self-confessed lover of novels ("I have read hundreds and hundreds"). He's an expert reader. He boasts that he finished Udolpho "in two day"; that's two full days of uninterrupted reading.
I'm not done, but so far I'm really enjoying this deep dive of Auten's work.
