It's quite amusing if you're familiar with Austen's various novels and their characters. This one is an epilogue to Persuasionas Captain Wentworth takes on the chore of asking Anne's father for her hand in marriage, and other post-engagement events occur. The writing is fine, but I just didn't really see much point to this meandering tale.

A modern investigative reporting crew for the TV show Ghost Trekkers arrives at Northanger Abbey to see if they can spot any ghosts or supernatural activities. While they interview Mr. Tilney-Tilney on camera, strange things start to happen.

Then crew member Cate meets an apparition in her bedroom, where there's an old cedar chest, and they have a rather amusing chat. Jane Austen tangles with Lord Harold Trowbridge, noted Corinthian and despoiler of maiden hearts, a lovely French lady, and a fashionable nobleman who may be spying for Villeneuve.

A very amusing and well-written story about a modern couple, Charles and Nicola Scott, and their run-in with an actress who's being taken by some con artists. Charles knows there's no such thing as a first edition of Pride and Prejudice signed by Jane Austen or worse yet, a signed first edition of Persuasion, which was published posthumously Nicola, though, has other ideas.

Another epilogue type of story, this one for Emma. Knightley is moving into Hartfield, the Woodhouse home, but Emma's father, old Mr. Woodhouse, is having more trouble with it than either she or Knightley expected. Woodhouse sat huddled next to the fire, his knees and shoulders wrapped in blankets. Anyone who set eyes on him could be forgiven for thinking that Mr. Knightley was forcing himself abominably on them in Hartfield, rather than performing an extraordinary sacrifice. Emma finds herself torn between father and husband - but Emma, characteristically, manages to come up with an idea.

The author isn't afraid of showing the shortcomings of Emma and Knightley as well as Emma's father, which messed with my HEA expectations a little and made me want to knock a little more sense into Emma, who takes her duty as a daughter much too seriously.

A letter written by Jane Austen to her niece Some nice advice, but the magical transportation of Jane to modern times seems to be for the sole purpose of giving her the chance to lament how tweets, emails and texts have replaced the fine art of handwritten letters. Elinor Carsholt, a 35 year old widow, has been left in dire financial circumstances by the accidental death of her financially careless husband a year ago.

Now she and her daughters live in a cottage on the handsome, 31 year old Sir Nicholas's estate. Perhaps Sir Nicholas is interested in Elinor's 16 year old daughter Amy? Elinor has mixed feelings about this, and hates accepting charity from him or anyone else. Jane Austen herself makes a brief guest appearance in this charming story. Elizabeth, a modern American young woman living in London and attending university, is trying to earn some money by dressing up as a Regency-era lady and offering Jane Austen-themed walking tours.

It's not working very well We learn a little bit about Jane Austen's life in this meet-cute story.

William Shakespeare – Jane Austen in Vermont

Wentworth is persuaded to tell the story of how he helped Croft and Sophy come together, back when Wentworth served as a young midshipman under Captain Croft on the ship Viper.

This story mostly focuses on Wentworth's life as a 15 year old midshipman, with just a touch of romance, but it's an interesting and well-researched story they talk about eating rats at sea!! Sara, an aspiring author, is distraught when her live-in boyfriend Charles suddenly disappears from her life, leaving behind only a letter that says he can't compete with her love for Darcy.

Perhaps the ghost of Jane Austen can help? Jane the Ghost's personality is rather abrasive and no-nonsense, actually, but intelligent and insightful, and it's rather funny seeing her take Sara to task for idolizing Darcy. The plot element relating to Sara adapting a lost book for publication was off, though it's still plagiarism even if Jane's ghost didn't think so, unless credit is given.

But the ending was funny. Bennet Meets His Match": Basically this is the story of how Elizabeth Bennet's father met and romanced the girl who would become Mrs Bennet.

I did appreciate the discussion of entailment: This admirable arrangement was devised by men, who reasoned sagaciously that women had no need of a roof over their heads as they were protected from the elements by their charming bonnets. Also worth the read for meeting Mr Collins' avaricious parents. This hilarious story is about Julie, a young teacher in s England, who has to supervise three Beatles-crazy high school girls during after-school detention.

They get into a crazy discussion comparing characters in Sense and Sensibility to the Beatles, debating, for example, whether George Harrison is Edward Ferrars or Colonel Brandon. Julie learns something about her own life and romantic relationship as well from their discussion. How did you and Kristina Straub come to work on this exhibit together?

Our partnership was the result of solid academic matchmaking!

Northanger Abbey

This exhibition has been a full three years in the making, during which time we have grown very close. I look at our publications and label text and cannot tell you what sentence began as mine and which was first drafted by Kristina. You mostly talk and write about Jane Austen, but also the book itself as part of the material culture of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. What was the biggest challenge in taking on this exhibit that largely deals with the artifacts of celebrity created and collected over the past years?

The dominance of non-book artifacts in this exhibition ceramics, paintings, odd assortments of relics, tchotchkes, and souvenirs may seem at odds with a serious library of rare books such as the Folger. However, although both Shakespeare and Austen are fundamentally admired for their great literary works, the history of their afterlives and the nature of their modern celebrity is not just about steady streams of new editions but about the material objects that ordinary fans crave and collect.

Mixing high and low culture in this exhibition books with bobble-heads, so to speak has been both a joy and a challenge. And yet we wanted these authors to stand together as potential equals. This meant that every juxtaposition of old and new objects, every comparison between the afterlives of Will and Jane, had to show similar impulses across centuries of fandom — in spite of any obvious differences between current market values of the materials shown.

What most surprised you in your findings? We initially thought that in order to fill 20 large display cases, we might have to stretch the comparison a bit here and there. But we were amazed by the tight parallels between, for example, the public spectacles that celebrated Shakespeare around his mark e. One thread across the exhibition is how these two American couples, collecting decades apart and focused on two very different writers, pursued their purchases in the same way.

What do you hope visitors will take away from this exhibit? Will and Jane at the Folger JB: A sense of fun. We hope the combination of whimsy and scholarship is infectious and will help folks to see that even pop culture benefits from a larger historical framework. What has been the response so far? A lively and lavishly illustrated review across two pages of the NYT weekend section on opening day surely helped to boost visitor numbers as well as raise our curatorial spirits.

The public seems genuinely curious about a show that pairs these equally famous but very different authors. The docents are the well-informed volunteers who lead daily group tours and have their finger on the pulse of true public reaction.
