First, watch this:
I'm curious - does the idea of meshing Austen's beloved characters with supernatural horrors intrigue you, or enrage you?
Austen made it clear that she thought gothic novels could be taken too seriously in Northanger Abbey. So what would she make of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Mr. Darcy, Vampyre?
I am inclined to think that she would disapprove, as her novels tend to support the value of thinking sensibly and clearly.
Yet, I like horror novels, so I'm tempted to try reading one or both of these novels.
What are your thoughts?
