Happy Birthday, Miss Austen

Yes, I love Jane Austen’s literary work, her wittiness and her ability to understand our psyche.

Now, I know there are people out there who might believe her novels are about romance, upper-class gold-diggers and the like… Well, those people are mistaken; there is romance, but nonetheless, to pretend Jane Austen’s work is sheer chick-lit is an insult to her genius.

That being explained: Let’s celebrate this marvellous author’s birthday!

*********************

Sí, adoro el trabajo literario de Jane Austen, su ingenio y su capacidad para entender nuestra psique.

Sé que hay gente por ahí que podría creer que sus novelas son sobre romance y caza fortunas de la clase alta… Pues bien, esa gente está equivocada; hay romance, pero sin embargo pretender que la obra de Jane Austen es mera chic lit es un insulto a su genio.

Una vez explicado el asunto: ¡Vamos a celebrar el cumpleaños de esta autora maravillosa!
