Where are all the characters in Jane Austin’s novels? | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

What happens when you take the works of Jane Austin, and start analysing the text for the characters showing up?

That’s what Matthew Hurst has done, taking some of Austin’s greatest novels and analysing where the paragraphs occur with the major characters mentioned. It’s a wonderful way to see the arcs of someone like Wiloughby in Sense and Sensibility.

Now, which books should be attacked next? May we here at T’Dust suggest the Harry Potter series?
