Sex, Money, and Power: JASNA AGM 2012 Quote Collection

This fall’s Annual General Meeting of the Jane Austen Society of North America in New York will be covering Sex, Money, and Power in Jane Austen’s fiction.  In honor of that, we’ll be featuring a series of quotes on those topics here between now and October.

I suspect there will be only a handful of quotes about sex, a few more about power, and a wealth of quotes about money (forgive the pun).

The portrait on the left is Joshua Reynolds’ painting of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who would have been well acquainted with each of those themes.  (If you haven’t seen the movie about her life, check it out.)

Hope to see you at the AGM!
