A bookish look in honor of Jane Austen and her scathing character portrayals. Lizzy Bennet is one of my favorite characters in all of fiction, as she should be to any book lover and admirer of strong women who are also intelligent, flawed, and emotional. Austen knew what she was doing when she wrote characters like Lizzy, Emma, and Catherine, among others, who are smart, arrogant, funny, proud, naive, and dynamic. Austen consistently makes me laugh out loud. And I dearly love a laugh.

“I am only resolved to act in that manner, which will, in my own opinion, constitute my happiness, without reference to you, or to any person so wholly unconnected with me.” – Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
