I was asked to keep a blog of my literary tour. So here goes. Jane Austen's Bath. She didn't like the place - she would find it weird that we now revere it on her behalf. The local Waterstone's has a long shelf stuffed with books based on the afterlife of her characters. What Darcy, Elizabeth, Caroline, Emma etc did next. There is a Jane Austen attraction in a house which she never lived in. I'm up at 5, as I cannot sleep in my big Hilton Room, because we seem to have decided to sell our house, and I have a Lecture on Gilpin, Austen and Landscape to revise (or remember!). Did I mention that there were no biscuits in this Hotel room?
