Jane Austen (Subtext)

$ 24.00

Imagine Jane Austen sitting at her writing desk mulling over the scene in which Mr. Darcy has just popped THE question. Lizzy takes it in, Jane Austen cracks her knuckles, and boom!… out comes one of the most memorable disses in the English canon: 

"Mr. Darcy, from the very beginning -- from the first moment, I may almost say -- of my acquaintance with you, your manners impressing me with the fullest belief of your arrogance, your conceit, and your selfish disdain of the feelings of others, were such as to form the groundwork of disapprobation on which succeeding events have built so immovable a dislike: and I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed upon to marry." - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice 

In short: HELL NO. 

Classic literature meets contemporary colloquialisms. The Subtext Collection alludes to the unspoken thoughts, implicit meanings and unadulterated truths that prove human experiences are timeless.
