“from love to matrimony in a moment” is on a hiatus
“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.” is a quote by Jane Austen from her book Pride and Prejudice. Through her column, Vaishnavi tries to tread the lands that once Austen’s characters walked upon, the thoughts they developed, the people they encountered, the plots and turns of their lives, and the central theme of almost all of her novels: marriage. It’s a softly captured glimpse of what happens in Austen’s world, and between the pages of her works.
