    And you know the Austen/Bronte divide is very wide. ;)
    But you know--for me, that's like comparing dogs and cats, apples and oranges, rainy days and halcyon days.  I like both Austen and the Brontes!  I want both!

    Am I exceptionally well adjusted because I like dogs and cats, etc.?  Or too much like "My last Duchess"?

    She liked whate'er she looked on,
    And her looks went everywhere.

    •  I also like dogs and cats. (4+ / 0-)

      We would be very dull people if we only liked certain types of things.  

      The Brontes couldn't stand Austen's works; said some very negative - and nasty - things about them.  But I did not know this till many years after I became an Austen fan and decided I wasn't fond of the Brontes at all.

      BTW, I am not just a fan of happy endings.  I am also a big fan of Daphne du Maurier and Ruth Rendell.  I probably prefer scares to lovers' angst.
