The Gentleman & The Rake
In one volume, you can read two classic English romances reimagined by Katherine Woodbury. The "gentleman" is Darcy from Pride & Prejudice; the "rake" Mr. B from Samuel Richardson's Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded.
Mr. B Speaks! is part reimagining, part literary criticism, and ALL satire (of the aforementioned literary criticism). All parts of Mr. B Speaks! have now been posted.
A Man of Few Words is a journey inside the brain of an intense introvert, namely Fitzwilliam Darcy. A Man of Few Words, starting with the foreword, will be posted beginning January 2, 2014.
The omnibus volume begins with a discussion of the romance genre in English literature. What is our fascination with romance? How has it changed over the years?
