Evidence

"Why do you like Miss Austen so very much? I am puzzled on that point. What induced you to say that you would have rather written ""Pride and Prejudice"" or ""Tom Jones"", than any of the Waverley Novels? I had not seen ""Pride and Prejudice"" till I read that sentence of yours, and then I got the book. And what did I find? An accurate daguerreotyped portrait of a commonplace face; a carefully fenced, highly cultivated garden, with neat borders and delicate flowers; but no glance of a bright, vivid physiognomy, no open country, no fresh air, no blue hill, no bonny beck. I should hardly like to live with her ladies and gentlemen, in their elegant but confined houses. These observations will probably irritate you, but I shall run the risk." [Bronte goes on to compare Austen and George Sand]
