Jane Austen Tribute

Fanny Austen-Knight (1793-1882) by Cassandra Austen

I'm not sure where this video came from or how long these trailer-like clips will be available on YouTube, but it's a great selection of several Jane Austen films. Sadly, The Pride and Prejudice (BBC) is missing. But there is Persuasion, the new Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and some good scenes from Mansfield Park.

Let me add, though, that I look forward with great anticipation to the Masterpiece Theater renditions of many Jane Austen films (BBC and even Andrew Davies involved once again) this fall. The film I most want to see well done is Persuasion, such a beautiful tale, so underdone for film so far.

Thanks for the link goes to Charming the Birds from the Trees.

To God be all glory.
