More About The Gentleman and the Rake by Katherine Woodbury; Eugene Woodbury
 
 
 
Overview
In this revised omnibus edition of Mr. B Speaks and A Man of Few Words, Katherine Woodbury provides a fresh perspective on two classic works of English literature. Adaptations of Jane Austen's most beloved and well-known work have too often transformed Fitzwilliam Darcy into the stereotypical alpha male of Regency romances. In order to correct this misunderstanding, Darcy has taken the opportunity to provide a more "balanced" view of the relationship between himself and Elizabeth Bennet. Bodily yanked out of Samuel Richardson's Pamela, the novel's hero, Mr. B, must defend himself in court before a panel of skeptical literary scholars and unfriendly critics. The redeemed rake of the first true English romance, Mr. B struggles to justify his provocative behavior. Will love conquer all in the 21st century as it did in the 18th? The result is a delightful dash through the roots of the modern romance novel
