You haven’t heard from me for a while because I dropped off the planet to finish this semester’s module of work before Christmas. It was all about learning to do research. The final assignment was to write a 3,000 word illustrated essay. I chose to write about the interests of middle class women during the Regency period in England. I focused on the first 30 years of the nineteenth century, the Jane Austen period. I found the whole exercise so interesting.
I have now shipped my work to my tutor in England and I am in catch-up mode with all of the things I have neglected this passed month.
The image above is an illustration I used in my essay. It is an engarving of a portrait by Sir Thomas Lawrence of a Regency woman.
