Illustration by C.E. Brock for Pride and Prejudice. The picture is courtesy of Molland’s, a site for people who love Jane Austen as much as I do (WARNING: if you go the site, be prepared to spend inordinate amounts of time drooling over all the pretty pretty pictures).
This is one of the most romantic scenes in the book, too. I mean, look — they are holding hands! It’s all so lovely that I am prepared to overlook Mr. Darcy’s unflattering headwear. I’m not sure any man in a hat like that could make MY sentiments undergo so material a change.
