Fun Friday - Jane Austen Trivia

Last night I co-hosted a program at my library. I ran Jane Austen Jeopardy.

Here are some of the questions. How many can you get right?

  • Along with the story Evelyn, this title makes up the whole of the third volume of the Juvenilia collection.
  • The short satirical work, Plan of a Novel, according to Hints from Various Quarters, was written by Jane in response from a letter from this man.
  • This brother would become Jane's literary agent.
  • Jane accepted and declined a proposal from this family friend.
  • The following quote is from this novel: "The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."
  • Neither Northanger Abbey or Persuasion have been made into major motion pictures, however both have been adapted for stage and television including a Northanger Abbey inspired episode of this children's program starting a dog.
  • This nonfiction book was written by a member of the Central NJ Region of JASNA
  • Isabel, Laura, and Marianne are characters in this epistolary story.
  • During the Regency Era these were put on display at the British Museum.

No looking up the answers!

Hi Janeites! Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to comment on our content. Of course, Lady Catherine would believe us all to behave like gentlemen and ladies, so please let us not disappoint her.

Also, please leave comments in English, as only Lady Catherine, had she ever studied a foreign language, would be a great profient enough to read such comments. (Merci! Arigato! Gracias!)
