Oxford Dictionaries has posted one of the easiest and best Jane Austen Q&A’s yet. Rather than test your knowledge of her novels, it merely asks you to pick from a selection of statements and then it tells you which character you are. The character descriptions at the end of the little test are a hoot too. Plus, it allows you to see which male character and which female character you are most like. Bonus!
I came out as Charles Bingley from Pride and Prejudice, with this description appended: “You’re never the cleverest or wittiest person in the room (sorry!), but you’re always the nicest, with a kind word to say for everyone.” Lovely sentiments, but I don’t think anyone who knows me would actually describe me that way.
And when taken for a female character, I come across as Lady Catherine de Bourgh (also of P&P)?! Sheesh!
Seriously, I know I’m John Knightley (from Emma) to the core.
Who are you?
