Which Jane Austen Heroine Are You?

I do have some more serious posts that I’m working on (or rather, in fact which are just rumbling about my brain) but in the meantime, I found this fun quiz on one of my old blogs and thought I would share 🙂

I am Elizabeth Bennet!

I couldn’t resist this!

“You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. [Yes, that’s right! – ed.] You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed.

I was of course most pleased to discover myself to be Elizabeth Bennet. I loved and do still love the BBC mini-series, which is affectionately known in our house as ‘The Wedding Story” (and is one of the favourites that gets fished out whenever any of us girls are really poorly) and I loved Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth. She was so good, it’s a shame that she hasn’t been in much of note since.

But just to remind me not to idolise my heroes of the silver screen, I checked her out on Twitter and she’s exceedingly un-like her character in P&P. Foul-mouthed, but otherwise quite boring.
