Austen v Scott

April 14th, 2013

Semi-ironic (if possibly-obvious) thought of the day: contemporary novels evoking Jane Austen and set in the Regency era dating scene are much less like the hard-edged contemporary satire Austen wrote than like the pseudo-historical yarns of Walter Scott. Who is usually held up as the exact opposite of Austen.

This is probably especially true in books where Jane Austen solves a murder case.
