Pride and Prejudice and Poetry


pnp_proposalKelly Ramsdell Fineman, a poet and Janeite, has been working on poems in a format called an “etheree,” which starts out with a first line of one syllable with each succeeding line adding a syllable, and then working back down again. She has written Mr. Darcy’s first proposal to Elizabeth Bennet as an etheree, and it’s pretty awesome. Check it out!

    Thanks, all! I have been spending a great deal of time with Austen again lately, and when assigned to write an etheree, I couldn’t resist!
