THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT DARCY
By GABRIELLE MALCOLM
For some, Colin Firth emerging from a lake in that clinging wet shirt is one of the most iconic moments in television. What is it about the two-hundred-year-old hero that we so ardently admire and love?
Dr Malcolm examines Jane Austen’s influences in creating Darcy’s potent mix of brooding Gothic hero, aristocratic elitist and romantic Regency man of action. In this insightful and entertaining study, every variety of Darcy jostles for attention. But who does it best and how did a clergyman’s daughter from Hampshire create such an enduring character?

A highly recommended read for Austen fans everywhere and, particularly, for all of us who share a passion for the enduring Mr. Darcy.
