From the diary: July 11, 1985
“Finished reading Pride & Prejudice.”
This was the first time I read Pride & Prejudice. I read it again three years later when it was assigned by an English professor at SRJC.
Women love Pride & Prejudice. Among the Stick questions was, “Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?” How many women answered, “Darcy!”
I’ll eventually work my way through Jane Austen. I enjoy her prose; she can be quite funny. I can’t say as I number Darcy, the available/unavailable suitor of P&P, among my crushes.
