While Jane Bennet Is Recuperating At Netherfield Park, Elizabeth And Mr Darcy Are Frequently Thrown Into Each Other S Company Despite Initial Resistance, The Pair Find That Their First Impressions Are Changing, Especially After Lizzy Overhears A Conversation Between Darcy And Charles Bingley Using The Language Of The Fan Darcy And Elizabeth The Language Of The Fan Is A Short Story Showing How Two People Come Together Through A Series Of Comical Miscues Somewhat witty, but characters have little in common with the original There are some grammar and editing mistakes in the text Mary Lydon Simonsen s Darcy and Elizabeth The Language of the Fan is a fun short story inspired by Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice While staying with her sick sister at Netherfield Park, Elizabeth Bennet falls asleep on a bearskin rug in the library only to awaken to a conversation between Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy Elizabeth tries to sneak out unnoticed, but she sticks around when the conversation turns to her sister, Jane, and ultimately turns into a demonstration by Mr Darcy of the language of the fan If you can picture Mr Darcy and Mr Bingley waving around black lace fans trying to determine whether Jane was communicating to Mr Bingley with her fan, you can understand why I laughed out loud several times while reading this story.But what I liked best about this story was the playful battle of wits between Mr Darcy and Elizabeth, who uses her knowledge of the conversation against him As their attraction grows, so does Elizabeth s desire to beat him at this game, building up to a hilarious scene in the parlor at Longbourn.Simonsen s Austen inspired stories never let me down Her affection for Austen s sense of humor and her wonderfully flawed characters shine through in Darcy and Elizabeth The Language of the Fan I breezed through this story with a smile on my face, and I can see myself reading it again sometime when I m in the mood for Elizabeth and Darcy s playful banter From the amusing use of the langu This was a fun light read Darcy is tring to teach bingley and lizzy over hears conversations anyway this short story was fun to read and well worth reading. Funny and cute.
