Pride and Prejudice
They say confession is good for the soul. Okay, here it goes--this weekend, feeling exhausted by the end of the semester and somewhat blue because of the nasty gray whether, I spent most of Saturday reading (and finishing at 2:30 in the morning) Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. I had an excellent annontated version that really helped to explain what was going on (and spoil most of the ending before I got there, so that I didn't feel much agnst--which, as my wife, would say is a good thing). I must say, though, that I was just about ready to strangle Mrs. Bennett (Elizabeth's mother), who had to be the most annoying character on the face of the planet.
