The casting of the heroines particularly is brilliant. Their “lineaments,” as Bronte would write, are perfect; a mixture of the kind of character and imperfection which results in a beauty which is far more interesting than the Hollywood kind. As regards the heroes' lineaments, they look okay to me, but you ladies would be better judges.
Most Recent Episode
The most recent episode was Mansfield Park, a novel I have not yet read. It was wonderful. You know Fanny's going to get her guy in the end, but it still feels so good when she does. My favourite line was from Lady Bertram who reminded her husband, Sir Thomas, that wives are “heaven's last best gift.” Never a truer word...By the by, I enjoy the way in the which the Christian faith is a natural and reasonable part of life in these stories. And they're Anglican!
