‘Peonies’ by Mary Oliver
This morning the green fists of the peonies are getting ready
to break my heart
as the sun rises,
as the sun strokes them with his old, buttery fingers
and they open —
pools of lace,
white and pink —
and all day the black ants climb over them,
boring their deep and mysterious holes
into the curls,
craving the sweet sap,
taking it away
to their dark, underground cities —
and all day
under the shifty wind,
as in a dance to the great wedding,
the flowers bend their bright bodies,
and tip their fragrance to the air,
their red stems holding
all that dampness and recklessness
gladly and lightly,
and there it is again —
beauty the brave, the exemplary,
Do you love this world?
Do you cherish your humble and silky life?
Do you adore the green grass, with its terror beneath?
Do you also hurry, half-dressed and barefoot, into the garden,
and exclaiming of their dearness,
fill your arms with the white and pink flowers,
with their honeyed heaviness, their lush trembling,
to be wild and perfect for a moment, before they are
William Merritt chase

There's Something About Mary Bennet
"In spite of all this, though, recent years have seen a proliferation of Mary-related—and, indeed, Mary-focused—fiction. There’s 2009’s The Independence Of Miss Mary Bennet, an exploration of the escapades Mary enjoyed after her sisters were married, written by Colleen McCullough, the other of The Thorn Birds. There’s Jennifer Paynter’s 2014 The Forgotten Sister: Mary Bennet’s Pride and Prejudice, which narrates the events of Austen’s novel from Mary’s point of view. There’s also Pamela Mingle’s The Pursuit of Mary Bennet: A Pride and Prejudice Novel, which offers Mary an alternate romantic subplot. And A Match For Mary Bennet, which does the same."

BARBARA J. HORWITZ"
"Lady Susan is an achievement as a work of fiction principally because Lady Susan herself possesses beauty, charm, and “artfulness.” Her use of art, like that of her creator, Jane Austen’s use of art, primarily involves language. For example, when she confides in a friend, she writes typically Austenian aphorisms, insisting, “I have never yet found that the advice of a Sister could prevent a young Man’s being in love if he chose it”"
"The wonderful irony that permeates this work has its foundation in the fact that consciously quoting books on the duties of mothers allows Lady Susan to mistreat her daughter."

Whit Stillman’s “Love & Friendship”: Subverting the Social Order with Style
"One of the reasons why Whit Stillman’s new film, “Love & Friendship,” is so deeply satisfying is that he filmed it on his home turf. “Love & Friendship,” an adaptation of an early novel by Jane Austen that was published only posthumously (in 1871), is set in London and on rural English estates in the early nineteenth century. Stillman is not English and not two hundred years old, but his home turf is the realm of style, and the formalities and conventions of pre-industrial and aristocratic England—as they can be gleaned from books, images, and studies—are the movie’s very substance.
For Stillman, Austen’s England is like John Ford’s West—a place that Stillman had no personal experience of but that, in his idealizing cinematic reconstitution, embodies his crucial ideas."

Director Whit Stillman on adapting Jane Austen for the big screen
"Reading the book right before you see the film will almost certainly ruin the film for you. And really, this idea of fidelity to the source material …" he trails off. "Honestly. You just make the best film you can make."

"With a new BBC adaptation starring Toby Jones and Vicky McClure beginning on Sunday 17 July, Joseph Conrad's classic thriller The Secret Agent suddenly feels very of-the-moment. Penned in the early 20th century, this tale of radicalised individuals, suicide bombers and shadowy espionage activities feels like it could have been written yesterday. With our age practically defined by acts of terror, Conrad's fin de siècle story, with its paranoia and its enemies within, holds a mirror up to our deepest fears. BRIAN MORTON explores this vanished epoch and finds it instantly, and sadly, all too familiar to our own."
The Secret Agent, a three-part adaptation of Conrad's novel, will be broadcast on Sunday 17 July, 21:00, BBC One.
