Diary of An Eccentric Guest Post: The Making of Yet Another Introverted Austen Heroine

This week I have written a guest post for the always interesting Diary of An Eccentric blog. I discuss why I have made Georgiana Darcy the heroine of Miss Darcy’s Beaux and what makes her so interesting and important to Pride and Prejudice. There is also a giveaway, so check it out!

“Seasoned Janeites know that Georgiana doesn’t have a single line of dialogue in Pride and Prejudice. However, her role in the novel is crucial. Georgiana’s planned elopement with Wickham highlights her seducer’s lack of scruples and morals, and also acts as a partial motivator for Mr Darcy’s dramatic intervention to make Wickham marry Lydia Bennet. More interestingly, the way Darcy treats Georgiana in Pride and Prejudice allows Elizabeth and the reader to glimpse a softer side to him, fuelling his transformation from insufferable snob into the romantic hero we all know and love.”
