It’s Straitlaced Saturday, my chuckaboos! I’m here with another Victorian Novels feature. This series complements the era of my steampunk serial, Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers.
Jane Austen has been mentioned in more than one of the serial chapters. I just realized that one of her novels escaped my attention. How could I have missed it, when it’s about a young girl named Fanny (even though my Pip’s granny is spelled Phanny — that was actually done so I could make her a “PIP” also)?
There were also audio books and films of the story in 1999 and 2007. Well, after all, it is Jane Austen…
Actually, this should be the entire movie:
Some bill the story as a comedy while others say it shows the dark side of Jane Austen. The concept doesn’t sound particularly comedic to me, but I suppose it could be a combination of both. If you’ve read it, leave a comment to let everyone know the box in which you think it lands.
As I’ve mentioned I’m now right at the edge of my moving date, so I won’t be reading this yet. However, we can still have a conversation about the Victorian Era and its novels, relationships, or Austen, or whatever you want.
If you want the book and have trouble accessing it, let me know and I’ll send you a file.
Leave a comment to join of begin a conversation. I might not be able to answer comments right away, but I love hearing from you.
Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers continues on Hidebound Hump Day. My chuckaboos, I’ll be looking for you at the steampunk submarine port on Wednesday, although I might not be able to answer comments for awhile by then.
Now some shameless self-promotion.
