Castle Rackrent (1800), by Maria Edgeworth

This book is #3 on my Back to the Classics list for 2014, and #49 on my Classics Club list.

Oh, dear. I fear I may have bitten off more than I can chew these past few weeks, first with A Sentimental Journey and now with Castle Rackrent. 543 more words

Filigree and Folly: Jane Austen's Lucy Steele and Maria Edgeworth's Rosamond

It’s an unforgettable scene in Sense and Sensibility: Lucy Steele and Elinor Dashwood, both eager in their different ways to continue their confidential conversation about Edward Ferrars, find an unexpected opportunity to escape the usual evening game of cards with the Middletons.   1,836 more words
