Did you keep the dialogue modern, or keep with Jane Austen’s dialogue?
Very little has been put in. Most of it is Jane Austen. One always has moments of wincing. I put in one line where Caroline Bingley is reading a letter, and I wanted a little chink of what’s happening in the outside world. I could’ve had a voice over with Jane Austen commenting, but that would not have worked.
