From the ludicrous to the sublime, the proposals of marriage portrayed in Jane Austen’s fiction reveal so much about the lovers who make them, the ladies who must respond and the nature of love and marriage. Please join us to consider the blunderings of Mr Collins (not every girl says no!); the arrogance of Mr Darcy; and the unbridled passion of Captain Wentworth in confessing love and offering marriage to Jane Austen’s heroines. We will also discuss the wisdom of the young ladies’ responses!
