I am Anne Elliot!

November 5, 2008

According to my quiz at – see the placard to the right for the visual!

Spark Notes defines Anne Elliot as:

Anne Elliot, the protagonist of Persuasion, is, like most Austen heroines, witty, clever, and considerate. Austen referred to her in one of her letters as “a heroine who is almost too good for me.” Though Austen very frankly notes that the bloom of youth has left Anne, and that she is not the prettiest of the young ladies in the novel, Anne becomes most decidedly more attractive when her better qualities are noted. Anne is proud of her appearance, and she is deeply hurt after overhearing that Captain Wentworth thinks her appearance much changed for the worst. Unlike her father, Anne also takes pride in practicality, intellect, and patience.

Makes me want to read Persuasion, how have I not read it yet? Have any of you read it? Is it recommended?
