Riveting Rhymes

We are pleased to announce that we have a new page on Janeite Journal! ‘Pemberley’s Poems’ is a collection of our favourite poems, dedicated to, or even written by the honourable Miss Jane Austen. We have also added a few of our own poems, in which we hope you will enjoy. These will mostly be the work of Miss Smith, as she is more experienced in the subject of writing and language; however, we shall all try our very best to take part in this joyous activity. Here is a small verse written by Miss Smith to start off our newly founded page…
