Dagens smakebit, som Flukten fra virkeligheten anordnar, kommer från Jane Austens Pride and Prejudice, en bok jag helt nyss börjat läsa och därför ger ett smakprov från inledningen. Fler smakebitar du hos Mari och om du deltar själv, tänk på att undvika spoilers 🙂
”It is a truth universelly acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered as the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters.
”My dear Mr. Bennet,” said his lady to him one day, ”have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?”
Mr. Bennet replied that he had not.
”But it is,” returned she;”for Mrs. Long has just been here, and she told me about it.”
Mr. Bennet made no answer.
”Do you not want to know who has taken it?” cried his wife impatiently.
”You want to tell me, and I have no objection to hearing it.”
This was invation enough.”
