Top 5 Austen-inspired Nonfiction Book of the Year - Austenprose.com

Inspired by the works of Jane Austen, the amusingly tongue-in-cheek Mr Darcy's Guide to Courtship is written from the perspective of Pride and Prejudice's Mr. Darcy and closely based on real Regency advice manuals. It is a hilarious and irreverent picture of the social mores of the period and of how men thought about women – and sheds amusing light on men of the modern age, too! Readers can dip into different sections for Darcy's views on a myriad of issues, including "What Females Want", "The Deceptions of Beautiful Women" and “Winning Their Affections, Flattery, Making Conversation, and Flirting!" Also included are sections written by Pride and Prejudice's Miss Caroline Bingley and Mr Darcy's correspondence with famous Regency figures including the Duke of Wellington.

While those of noble blood have a distinct natural advantage, an air of

For this reason it is unwise to treat her too freely, or to begin wooing a lady shortly before her birth-day – the project will quickly descend into ruinous expenditure. While giving gifts ensures success with a particular type of female – just as a dog will favour any man who gives it treats – her interest will wane when pretty trinkets are no longer forthcoming. However, there are certain, sensible gifts that

should never wish on a person of respectability. However, it is not good form to languish around in such violent paroxysms of self-pity that you live only to be an instrument of annoyance to the rest of the world. Those believing themselves to be martyrs for love make the most insufferable company. To Bachelors Sirs, if your matrimonial prospects are utterly exhausted, resign yourself to the fact with the stoicism befitting an Englishman and acquaint yourself permanently with the life of a

quality of the insights afforded by the original volume precluded any personal astonishment at the violence of the popular response, but I admit to being rather ill-prepared for the disorder that has rained down on Pemberley in the intervening months. I have been deluged with letters from my readers – some noble and many, regrettably, vulgar – seeking advice on how they may better conduct their amours. Although I care not for indulging the whims of the common rabble, yet I will attempt to be

no fit subject for a gentleman to dwell upon, I am glad to hand the task over to Miss Caroline Bingley. Having by no means exhausted herself in hovering over my writing desk, nor in her indefatigable admiration of my handwriting, Miss Bingley has rather insisted on making some small contribution to this work. Feminine Beauty What it is, and How to Retain it Hints from Miss Caroline Bingley RELUCTANT as I first was to reveal the secrets of the fashionable feminine toilette to all and
