Just discovered the Cozy Classics version of Pride and Prejudice at Munro’s. They managed to recapture the plot in about 10 concise words and I’m kind of in love.

I don’t think the video quite does these justice. They’re board books with one word pages. I’ve just ordered Pride and Prejudice. I can’t wait until Jane Eyre comes out in the fall. (No, I don’t have any young children to read them to. They’re for me, okay?)

From Rob Roy by Walter Scott

In the attitude in which she bent from her horse, which was a Highland pony, her face, not perhaps altogether unwillingly, touched mine. She pressed my hand, while the tear that trembled in her eye found its way to my cheek instead of her own. It was a moment never to be forgotten—inexpressibly bitter, yet mixed with a sensation of pleasure so deeply soothing and affecting, as at once to unlock all the flood-gates of the heart. It was but a moment, however; for, instantly recovering from the feeling to which she had involuntarily given way, she intimated to her companion she was ready to attend him, and putting their horses to a brisk pace, they were soon far distant from the place where I stood.

The first episode turns on Edward’s desire for Elizabeth. How did she go about playing the sexiness of that? “It’s a love story between two people,” she says, “a girl and a boy that today would be wearing jeans.”
In the aftermath of lots of big US cable dramas, however, such as Game of Thrones and The Borgias, and even UK series such as The Tudors, you might expect that the drama will be driven by copious sex and violence. In fact, the production eschews battle scenes – they happen off screen – to focus on the complex, shifting allegiances and power plays of the main characters, all seen, as they are in Gregory’s book, through the eyes of women at the centre of the struggle for power.
