Jane Austen’s Regency World Magazine September/October 2010 Preview

Hot off the presses is the September/October 2010 (No 47) edition of Jane Austen’s Regency World, the official magazine of the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, England and the ultimate Austen reading indulgence.

I am looking forward to reading author Sue Wilkes article on a Georgian gentleman’s de rigueur reading list. I’m taking bets on what will be on it. Fielding? Richardson? Radcliffe? Well, maybe on a Henry Tilney’s gentleman’s reading list, right? Here are the features articles:

The Secret Diaries of Anne Lister:

Featured on the cover is the BBC’s new drama about a Georgian heiress who follows an unconventional path in life and love. Staring Maxine Peake (Miss Wade in Little Dorrit 2008) and Anna Madeley (Lucy Steele in Sense and Sensibility 2009), here is a synopsis from IMDb:

In nineteenth century Yorkshire wealthy orphan Anne Lister lives with an aunt and uncle, anxious for her to marry well and blissfully – unaware that she is a lesbian. Anne is recording her thoughts and exploits in a coded diary. When her lover Mariana Belcombe makes a marriage of convenience to rich old Charles Lawton she feels betrayed and, although Mariana visits her,the relationship is going nowhere. Helped by old flame Tib she makes a play for innocent Miss Browne but sees she is barking up the wrong tree and diverts herself by renovating the family hall. A drunken Tib almost exposes her secret and scornful mine-owner Christopher Rawson, whose marriage proposal she rejects, tells her that her sexuality is a subject of local gossip….
