Examples of Austen in a Sentence

  1. Devoney Looser:

    I'd say I find any adaptation of Jane Austen to be a successful one if it gets me thinking, or rethinking, any parts of the original.

  2. Shauna Lynch:

    Jane Austen died much too young, i think that Jane Austen early death seems such a waste that admirers of the novels can't help but try to explain it ; obviously, for some people, the more dramatic the explanation the better.

  3. Joel Kim Booster:

    There's a universality to how Jane Austen depicts class struggles, especially in a place like Fire Island, where suddenly there are no straight people around to oppress us and we have to find ways to oppress one another, we recreate the artificial class systems and other hierarchies that exist in the rest of the world but are just magnified and felt so much more viscerally in a place where it's only gay people.

  4. Phyllis McGinley:

    The system -- the American one, at least -- is a vast and noble experiment. It has been polestar and exemplar for other nations. But from kindergarten until she graduates from college the girl is treated in it exactly like her brothers. She studies the same subjects, becomes proficient at the same sports. Oh, it is a magnificent lore she learns, education for the mind beyond anything Jane Austen or Saint Theresa or even Mrs. Pankhurst ever dreamed. It is truly Utopian. But Utopia was never meant to exist on this disheveled planet.

  5. Devoney Looser:

    If we don't recreate Austen's nineteenth-century stories for our own time, and attract new generations of viewers, then these texts won't live on, so I'm definitely all for adaptations that use Austen's material as an inspiration, and make their own mark on it, rather than treating Jane Austen originals as blueprints that must be religiously copied.
