Jane Austins rules – a clasic guide to modern love

O iubesc pe Jane Austen. Dovada sta tatuajul meu de pe mana stanga, unde i-am folosit fontul ca sa fie asa, ca o semnatura a ei. Iubesc perioada aceea in care era greu sa furi un sarut, in care sentimentele se exprimau in scrisori lungi si pline de patos, cand onoarea si reputatia erau niste monede de schimb. Cateodata ma intreb daca nu m-am nascut in secolul gresit.

Bineinteles, nu puteam sa nu il iubesc si pe Mr Darcy, carismatic, misterios si inteligent, imaginea cavalerismului si a elegantei.

Si, nu o sa vina ca o surpriza, dar am vazut toate ecranizarile romanelor ei si toate filmele care au o cat de mica legatura cu asta.

Dar nu am la fel de multe cuvinte de lauda pentru cartea de fata. Nu am gasit in ea sfaturi pe care sa le aplic atunci cand il caut pe Mr Darcy, insa am gasit multe referinte la personajele din lui celebrele carti , si mi-am amintit cu drag de ele. Si chiar si referiri la viata ei.

Cel mai mult m-au atras la romanele lui Jane felul in care ea a ales sa portretizeze femeile, independente, educate si spirituale, cu mult diferit fara de cum erau ele vazute de obicei in acea perioada, in care era mult mai important sa te casatoresti decat educatia sau aspiratiile.Din pacate, cand ma uit in jur, vad ca, pentru multe fmei, lucrurile nu s-au schimbat foarte mult.

La fel ca si romanele lui Jane, sfaturile sunt feministe, cu exemple despre cum sa fii o femeie, nu o fata, cum sa iti cauti un barbat, nu un baiat, cat de important este sa iti spui parerea, sa fii preocupata de cum arati si sa ai asteptari ridicate, pentru ca meriti.

Insa pare mai mult o rubrica din Cosmo in care, in loc sa avem exemple ca Meghan Markle, Beyonce sau JLo le avem pe Elizabeth Bennet, Emma sau Miss Bingley.

Daca ti-a placut Mandrie si prejudecata ( este imposibil sa nu o fi citit macar o data) poti incerca si:

1. In primul rand reciteste Jane Austen: Mandrie si Prejudecata, Ratiune si simtire, Emma, Persuasiune, Manastirea Northanger, Mansfield park

2. Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte, unde in locul lui Mr Darcy il avem pe Mr Rochester, iar protagonista povestii de dragoste, Jane, este o guvernanta la fel de ambitioasa, cu puternice principii de la care nu se abate in ciuda dorintei inimii si care, la final, dovedeste ce suflet bun si cald este, mai presup de toate incercarile vietii.

3. La rascruce de vanturi- Emily Bronte, cu o povestea de dragoste diferita, asemenea unui razboi din care Heathcliff si Catherine uita sa se mai opreasca pentru a vedea ce conteaza cu adevarat.

Read and be happy 🙂

[EN] I love Jane Austen. The proof is my tattoo on my left hand, where I used the font to make it look like a signature of her. I love that time when it was hard to steal a kiss, in which the feelings were expressed in long letters and full of pathos, when honor and reputation were coins of exchange. Sometimes I wonder if I was born in the wrong century.

Of course, I couldn`t help loving Mr Darcy, charismatic, mysterious and intelligent, the image of chivalry and elegance.

And, it will not come as a surprise, but I’ve seen all the adaptation movies  and all the movies that have little to do with it.

But I do not have as many words of praise for the present book. I did not find in it tips to apply when looking for Mr Darcy, but I found many references to the characters in his famous books, and made me remember them. And even references to her life.

The thing i liked most in Jane’s novels is the way she chose to portray independent, educated and spiritual women, much different from what they were usually seen at that time, when it was more important to be married than education or aspirations. Unfortunately, when I look around, I see that for many women things have not changed much.

Just like in Jane’s novels, the advice is feminist, with examples of being a woman, not a girl, how to look for a man, not a boy, how important it is to tell your opinion, to be concerned about how you look and have high expectations because you deserve it.

But it looks more like a heading in Cosmo where, instead of having examples like Meghan Markle, Beyonce or JLo, we have Elizabeth Bennet, Emma or Miss Bingley.

If you liked Pride and prejudice (it’s impossible not to have read it at least once) you can also try:

1.First read everything from Jane Austen: Pride and Prejudice, Sense and sensibility, Emma, ​​Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park

2. Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte, where instead of Mr. Darcy we have Mr. Rochester and the protagonist of the love story, Jane, is an equally ambitious governess with strong principles from which he does not deviate despite his heart’s desire. She ultimately proves us what a good and warm soul is, despite of all life’s attempts.

3. Wuthering heights- Emily Bronte, with a different love story, like a war out of which Heathcliff and Catherine forget to stop to see what really matters in life.

Read and be happy 🙂
