A Woman’s Wit

“If you said you were going off for the weekend and you were doing nothing except re-reading Emma or taking Mansfield Park to bed, that image for me would be one of pure happiness. I mean, you could bring maybe a person to bed, and that might be nicer in some way, but it wouldn’t be as fully satisfying.”
— Colm Toíbín

Authors, scholars, and philosophers discuss the writing of Jane Austen in conversation around the exhibition A Woman’s Wit: Jane Austen’s Life and Legacy at The Morgan Library and Museum in New York. A video to watch for those who love the work of Austen, and for those who don’t yet know they do. (via karigee)
