Jane Austen

People keep messing with Jane Austen's work. I'm annoyed by it.

I am a fervent Jane Austen fan. I love her eloquent prose, her portrayal of social conventions during Victorian England, and her penchant for subtle criticism. And I think people need to leave her work well-enough alone!

As you may or may not know, her work is in the public domain and is no longer covered by copyright. So, people can do what they will with it. And ohhhh have they.
