Clutch the pearls!

And speaking of Jane Austen's work, AustenBlog has put together a helpful collection of links about the recent kerfluffle over Austen scholar Kathryn Sutherland, who has made the shocking allegation that the early drafts of Austen's work contain spelling errors and display considerable confusion over than whole "I before E except after C" thing.


Somehow we managed to remain calm in the face of this horrifying news, but lurid, attention-grabbing (and totally misleading) headlines like The Telegraph's "Jane Austen's famous prose may not be hers after all" certainly make it sound like a major literary discovery.
