The Men of Austen

Your regularly scheduled Austen update has been replaced by a fun link today. Why? Because today I turn an age that makes me older than any old maid in any Austen novel (actually, I'm still younger than Charlotte Lucas), so to celebrate that, we're going to look at a particularly amusing web site that Masterpiece Classic put together: The Men of Austen.

The site consists of "dating profiles" for all the men who appear in Austen's novels, along with photos of who played the gent in the BBC series. Below are a couple favorites, which you can click to enlarge.


  1. Is it at all surprising that I've totally done these quizzes before? According to PBS, Henry Tilney is my Austen boyfriend. I hope you have a great birthday!

  2. A delayed happy birthday! This is awesome.
