Austen, Prose, and on

I'm reading the biography of Jane Austen that was adapted into the movie, "Becoming Jane". It's good. The biographer takes leaps but I'm fine with them.

I like reading prose. Sometimes it's necessary. Two writer I would like to revisit, because they keep being referred to in various things I'm reading, are Henry James and James Joyce. I think it was "Reading Like a Writer" that both authors were mentioned often. Also, Pound mentions them in "How to Read". Here's a link about contemporary prose that showed up on that Facebook news feed thingy of FB Friends & it grabbed my attention.

I shall read it later, I hope.
