Description

Mr Darcy and the Men of Pride and Prejudice with Susannah Fullerton

The moment in the BBC Pride and Prejudice when Darcy emerges from a lake in a wet white shirt has been voted the favourite TV moment of all time! And it is not even in the novel! However, the vote served to confirm the incredible sexiness of Jane Austen's hero.

What makes Mr Darcy so powerfully attractive? Is it because he rarely says a word? Is it his height, his estate, or something in his behaviour? And how does Jane Austen use other men in the novel for comparison - the foolish Mr Collins, sarcastic Mr Bennet, wicked Mr Wickham, and affable Mr Bingley.

Join this exploration of masculinity in Pride and Prejudice and delight in one of the sexiest men to ever grace the pages of a book.

Susannah Fullerton OAM, FRSN, is an author, literary historian and President of the Jane Austen Society of Australia.
