Eliza Chute, of The Vyne

June 12, 2008 at 3:09 pm (introduction) (, , , )

Reading the post below, reminds me to mention here a wonderful article that does indeed cite the diaries of Eliza Chute. It was destined for JAS’s annual publication (Report), but, forgotten, it ended up online — for which I am truly grateful: that fact gave me a chance to read it.

The author, Anne Hardy, looks at Sense and Sensibility and the possible connection a woman from The Vyne may have had with Austen and her novel. Highly recommended!

(for more on The Vyne: see the National Trust; or Hantsweb – with its lovely chalk-drawing of a young Emma Smith! Some exterior photos are found at astoft.co.uk)
