Can’t get enough of Pride or Prejudice in book or movie form? Captivated by Austen’s entertaining repartee and Elizabeth’s enlightened living? Do you despair at having to put down the novel or step away from the DVD? Despair no more! How to Speak Like Jane Austen and Live Like Elizabeth Bennet translates the language of Austen and the lifestyle of Elizabeth into easy-to-embrace guidelines for 21st century living, making it possible to talk like Jane and act like Elizabeth – anytime, anyplace. Much like Austen and Elizabeth, How to Speak Like Jane Austen and Live Like Elizabeth Bennet takes a sometimes lighthearted, sometimes serious, approach to the parlance and pace of Pride and Prejudice. Part I, “How to Speak Like Jane Austen,” is an entertaining resource, translating 21st century words, phrases and sentiments into their Pride and Prejudice counterparts, making it easy to introduce the author’s language into contemporary conversation. A more serious interpretation of Elizabeth’s lifestyle is contained in Part II, “How to Live Like Elizabeth Bennet,” which distills the heroine’s circumspect and circumscribed existence into simple precepts for modern living. Part III, “What Would Lizzie Do?,” puts the enjoyment of the language and the inspiration of the lifestyle together in a lighthearted imagining of a more Austen-sounding and Elizabeth-acting way of life.
