“Persuasion” by Jane Austen: A Measured, Pertinent, Critical Response.

- OMG, Anne Elliot is the most adorable character EVER. BFF!
- Admiral Croft too! His gratifyingly open, perfectly amiable dialogue seems to envelope the reader in addition to any character he addresses. Curious as to how such admirable older male characters are never the fathers of Austen’s heroines, no? Interesting…
- The book is almost DONE and ol’ Cap’n Wentworth still hasn’t made any moves yet. It’s killing me, damn it, go ravish Anne already! My heart broke ten times at least, since you two became reacquainted. The suspense! Argh.
