The Jane Austen Box ~ Theme Announcement! ~ “Mistress of Pemberley”
For the March Jane Austen Box, we are delighted to announce that the theme will be “Mistress of Pemberley.” Jane Austen is a master storyteller and has many distinctly different romances that bring her characters to the altar.....but what do these women do after they are married? Her heroines make a variety of “matches,” from those who live happily ever after at a country parsonage, to being a captain’s wife, to entering the realms of the very wealthy landed gentry as Elizabeth Bennet does at the end of Pride and Prejudice.
In this box, we will focus on Lizzie, as in a single leap she goes from well-bred but almost penniless to becoming one of the wealthiest if not THE wealthiest lady in her region, taking on the responsibilities of a grand estate: Pemberley. In addition to being a wife and very hopefully a mother, running such a large estate was an enormous task, and her sister Jane would likewise have had a similar challenge before her. Management, oversight, keeping everything running smoothly throughout the year, and being an extraordinary hostess were just some of the duties that were expected of her. In addition, charitable works and care of the people who worked the estate, the tenant farmers who worked the land, and the large staff of servants would all be under her supervision. When her children begin to grow up, overseeing their education and then directing their first steps into society becomes a new phase of responsibility. To be Mistess of Pemberley was something, indeed. We imagine that Elizabeth Bennet was more than equal to the task.
“...She looked forward with delight to the time when they should be removed....to all the comfort and elegance of their family party at Pemberley." - Jane Austen
