"Arrange the great English novelists as one will, it does not seem possible to bring them out in any order where she is not the first, or second or third, whoever her companions may be....A little aloof, a little inscrutable and mysterious, she will always remain, but serene and beautiful also because of her greatness as an artist."
Virginia Woolf, Times Literary Supplement, 05/08/1913Review:
"She thought an unattached young woman with intelligence...was the most marvelous creature in the world...What must have made this type so appealing to her, of course, was that this was the only time in their lives in which women like that had an absolute power--if only the power to withhold themselves--over the desires of a man. Austen felt keenly the fragility of the circumstance...This is what makes the scene of Darcy's first proposal so potent: Elizabeth will never experience again so fine an emotional surge as she does when she spurns him. It is the one context in which she is permitted to say exactly what she feels."
MGM promotion of the 1940 film of the novel
