Jane Austen

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a Jane Austen addiction must be in want of more Jane Austen adaptations - Hazel, Delineating Des
 Jane Austen
16 December 1775 - 18 July 1817
an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature, her realism and biting social commentary cementing her historical importance among scholars and critics. - Wikipedia

Among ABC Wednesday players I doubt a Jane Austen needs much introduction. Even less known facts about her must not be much surprise to many of you. But forgive me I couldn't resist.

Bride and Prejudice, Tents and Tentsability, Fried and Pre-juiced Dishes, the book clubs, the blogs, the societies, and many more are a testament to her popularity.
As a fan working in the Education industry and trained in research, my readings about Jane Austen, tilt towards the literary criticism side of her works.  That besides all other JA-related things, is endless fun. As this burlesque is:

No Sense, No Sensibility

The justifiably amazing Jane. Very funny video; I'm still waiting for a barouche at my door, could be some time.

a terrific J idea. One of my favorite authors. You have now possible started on the Jane Austen re-read I have been wanting to do!

I have read all JA's books, and seen the various TV and movie versions. What I'd really like to know is whether JA would find the BBC English accents of her characters in the movies and theaters a bit outlandish or just plain funny rather than accurate. (That's not a dig at the Brits, for I am one myself). But I do think we have invented a way of speaking, for all characters of that time period that is not legitimate. Do you think?
