Looks What’s Brewing in the Regency

  • PERSUASION:  A novel of change, by Tony Grant
    Inquiring readers: One reason I love Tony Grant’s submissions is the wonderful original images that he takes of the sites he discusses – in this instance, Bath and Persuasion, Jane Austen’s final and arguably her best novel.

  • Netley Abbey and the Gothic by Tony Grant
    Inquiring readers, Tony Grant, a blogger and contributor to this blog for a decade, has submitted this interesting post about Netley Abbey. He ties history, literature, poetry, and painting to Jane Austen’s fascination with the gothic novel, which led to her writing Northanger Abbey in her wonderfully satiric vein. Enjoy! My Memories of Netley Abbey […]
