Harriet Walter Reflects on Jane Austen

The Morgan Library's website features a film by Harriet Walter, who reflects on Jane Austen: "I think one of the reasons people love Jane Austen is that she's quite wicked, but she's not really viciously cruel. She's sympathetic towards the people she's laughing at."

Goes to show that everyone has their own take on Jane Austen's novels and characters, which is why they are so passionately loved by so many !

I absolutely love Harriet Walter's audiobook reading of "Lady Susan." She was a perfect Lady Susan!
