    One of the nice things about Jane Austen's works is that--as far as I can remember--a man pestering a woman to marry him, or telling her to "take time to think it over" or whatever, after she's already said no, is never portrayed as romantic or praiseworthy.

    Darcy notably bends over backward to avoid even the appearance of pursuing Elizabeth, even when he knows she has important information she didn't have at the time of the proposal. Wentworth admittedly went too far in the opposite direction by running off for eight whole years (too far because he was motivated more by pride than respect for Anne's feelings, which he knew were favorable to him), but even when he falls back in love with her, he doesn't say anything until he hears her conversation with Harville.

    The only characters I can remember that do refuse to take a "no" as final are Mr. Collins, Crawford, and Frank Churchill with Jane, and... we're really not meant to see any of these guys' actions as laudable.

    In Jane Austen books, real romantic prospects back off when they're told to, and I appreciate that.

    #was watching some period romance adaptation which featured a very indecisive girl and multiple persistent guys #and i was like 'i realize i shouldn't compare every romance to jane austen because some of them are doing different things' #'but also an austen hero would never :/' #(also her heroines are more decisive. they KNOW what they value in a marriage and what they think of a guy before the proposal point) #anyway the PROPER reaction to a rejection is to back off and be polite unless you hear her have a conversation with a third party #that strongly suggests she is in fact in love with you #then you can TENTATIVELY ask her again #austen

    Some things I created with AI (Wombo Dream) cuz Im currently back in my ,,Pride and Prejudice'' phase if I ever actually left it. Although my favorite one is the last one, not really related to the book.

    “Elinor agreed to it all, for she did not think he deserved the compliment of rational opposition.”

    One reason I love Jane Austen’s novels so much is how relatable they still are 200 years later. Take this scene in Sense and Sensibility: Don’t we all know situations like this where we think the other person is talking complete rubbish but is just not worth wasting our energy on by arguing with them?

    A Most Clever Girl: How Jane Austen Discovered Her Voice

    A Most Clever Girl: How Jane Austen Discovered Her Voice

    A Most Clever Girl: How Jane Austen Discovered Her Voice by Jasmine A. Stirling I have been meaning to write this review since July, when I purchased this book for my niece, but it just seems like every time I try to sit down and write it something gets in the way. Don’t you hate when that happens? But no longer, I am happy to finally post my review of this book. Back in August of 2020,…

    Not that I have much pleasure, indeed, in talking to anybody. People who suffer as I do from nervous complaints can have no great inclination for talking.

    Frank Churchill: *composes 'DIXON' for Emma to mock Jane for being supposedly courted by him*

    Jane Fairfax: *pissed because she is 1) jelaous of the attention Frank gives Emma and 2) thinks Frank is deliberately raising attention to her stay in Weymouth when she is desperately trying to keep their engagement secret*

    Frank Churchill: *covertly composes 'BLUNDER' to make it up to her*

    Jane Fairfax: *barely looks at the word*

    Augusta Elton, who like most of the people present-barring Mr Knightley-knows only a quarter of what is happening and is very upset that she is not involved in it : I am getting bored, let us play another game!
