One of my favorite websites DailyLit is offering a readers challenge to describe their favorite classic book in six words or less. Of course, I had to give it my best try at Jane Austen’s novels and came up with these ditties.
Sense and Sensibility: Manic and depressive find love!
Pride and Prejudice: Petulance + Perspicacity = bestseller
Mansfield Park: Fanny a prig? No way!
Emma: Clueless, overconfident and offensive in Highbury
Northanger Abbey: Gothic obsession = guy with castle
Persuasion: Never throw away a blue coat!
Lady Susan: Mom schemes - eats daughter 4 lunch
So, Gentle Readers, how would you cleverly describe our favorite author’s novels, or any others in classic literature?
Cheers, Laurel Ann, Austenprose
