Online Reading

Read again, for the third time at least, Miss Austen's finely written novel of "Pride And Prejudice." That young Lady had a talent for describing the involvements and feelings and characters of ordinary life, which is to me the most wonderful I ever met with. The big Bow-Wow strain I can do myself like any now going; but the exquisite touch which renders ordinary common-place things and characters interesting from the truth of the description and the sentiment is denied to me. What a pity such a gifted creature died so early!

~ Sir Walter Scott's diary, 14 March 1826
