  • Shapewear Nightmare | Jane Austen Addict, home of author Laurie Viera Rigler
    Regent was a favorite target of cartoonists for trying to mask his size with a corset Today we call these instruments of torture shapewear Sounds friendly and appealing doesn t it After all who doesn t want to have a shape The promise and the reality of shapewear however can be two very different things If you ve ever had a shapewear nightmare of your own you will love Melissa McCarthy s story But here s where we can really explore the WHY of shapewear and ROFL in the process This is about three guys who decide to test out a girlfriend s Spanx just for a laugh and get more than they bargained for Brilliant If sheer discomfort isn t enough to inspire you to choose jiggles over bodily strangulation this fab piece in Bustle talks about the compression of organs yeast infections and other fun stuff that shapewear supports In any case and whether you are still armoring yourself in shapewear stowing them away in a rarely visited corner of your wardrobe or indulging in a full on ceremonial burning may you temper it all with a good laugh and a healthy dose of compassion for yourself and for all of us who have ever worried about measuring up to an impossible standard On that note here s another funny and heartfelt piece in Bustle The Seven Emotional Stages of Wearing Spanx for the Very First Time Here s one of the seven GIFs from the piece Emotional Stage 1 via GIPHY There is of course one very important change since Jane Austen s day Which is that while we can get our knickers in a twist over the pressure to wear shapewear Jane Austen could not Why Because we re talking pretty much a panty free zone

  • EMMA 200th Anniversary Edition | Jane Austen Addict, home of author Laurie Viera Rigler
    other places and times and they still work My own favorite creation inspired by Austen is Amy Heckerling s Clueless from 1995 Clueless is a joy to experience and smart too much like an Austen novel I m also a big fan of Sense and Sensibility also from 1995 for which Emma Thompson wrote the screenplay Experiencing Austen through the eyes of a witty thoughtful contemporary woman it doesn t get any better than that I like Karen Joy Fowler s novel The Jane Austen Book Club from 2004 for the same reason an experienced writer chooses to think about how Austen s works matter to us today and takes us along for the ride Lost in Austen the British miniseries from 2008 is also a big favorite of mine A rabid Austen fan finds her way into the world of Pride and Prejudice and messes it up It s a hoot to see the Austen characters we know so well doing and saying things that they NEVER would have done or said in the original novel I think TV and movie adaptations of Austen are so popular for two main reasons They re beautiful to watch no question And they offer a respite which a lot of people of all ages value from the loud fast scary stuff that much of mainstream entertainment is these days The tricky part comes sometimes when someone knows and loves Austen through the films and then goes to pick up one of the novels only to discover that the reading experience is a lot more complex and challenging than the viewing experience I had those first time readers of Austen very much in mind when creating this new edition of Emma What is it like to prepare a new edition of a book that s so well known and exists in many editions What kind of research did you do Did anything you learned during the process surprise you It was really important to me to create a truly new approach to Emma a welcoming reader friendly approach Excellent editions of Emma already exist for scholars and for devoted Janeites With this anniversary edition I wanted to open Austen up to people who hadn t given her a try before and to support their reading experience by using everything I know from years of teaching undergraduates and from talking with everyday readers I certainly reached for plenty of scholarly and reference sources on my shelves but I d say my most important preparation was to have built up over time a sense of what readers are curious about and what frustrates them in their first encounter with an Austen novel And through my teaching I ve had a lot of practice at explaining historical concepts in an accessible way I also had the huge pleasure of re reading Emma myself slowly with pencil in hand making lists of topics to cover in my contextual essays and marking words that would likely be unfamiliar

    be deliciously wicked fun Surviving the Dreaded 14th 14 ways to survive Valentine s Day Has a holiday ever caused so much unhappiness I m not talking about how it was when we were kids Then it was all about giving everyone in class a paper valentine and those little heart candies Though kids could get mean about that too if left to their own devices like leaving out the kids nobody talked to As adults we re supposed to be more equipped to deal with that stuff but it takes a stalwart sort to withstand the collective anxiety in the run up to Valentine s Day let alone the day itself If you re not in a relationship the ads for jewels and bouquets and V Day menus seem to be mocking your lack of a BF if you re in a relationship it s sadly easy to get caught up in expectations and there s nothing less romantic than thinking what s he going to get me and it had better not be cheap or unromantic Or Is he going to take me out and somewhere good for a change or even worse Is he finally going to propose It s enough to make you want to go underground till February 15 via GIPHY But don t despair you can get through it Not by hiding and pretending there s no such thing as the dreaded V Day But by embracing the true message behind the holiday and making Feb 14 your own empowering feel good holiday regardless of your relationship status more Take the Austen Movie Poll Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller in EMMA What s the next Austen movie that should be made Mansfield Park Will somebody pelase get this one right Pride and Prejudice
