Insults & Inspirations: What authors thought of Jane Austen - Inspirations Pt 1

25 September 2015.  General

In the 2nd of our Insults & Inspirations posts and the extreme reactions that Jane Austen has provoked up and down the years we include four quotes from authors who found the positives in her work. To accentuate the positives there's a link to a short story by a certain Mr Kipling that you can read online. Have you read it before?

In the 3rd of our Insults & Inspirations posts and the extreme reactions that Jane Austen has provoked up and down the years we include four quotes from three female authors who didn't appreciate the Austen ouevre. What do you think about the points they make?

In the first of our "Insults & Inspirations" posts we look at the insults thrown at Jane Austen by certain authors (that are named and shamed)... and how other authors found inspiration in her work. It's a mixed bag and you may be taken aback at the vitriol and sheer bitchiness of the insults, especially when you consider the stature of those quoted.
