Poll Closed!

The poll is now closed. Thank you everyone for voting! Here are the results!

To the question "What is your favorite Jane Austen novel?", 32 voters answered (and could pick more than one):

Pride and Prejudice with 23 votes (71%)
Persuasion with 10 votes (31%)
Sense and Sensibility and Emma tied with 9 votes (28% apiece)
Northanger Abbey with 8 votes (25%)
Mansfield Park with 5 votes (15%)
Juvenilia with 1 vote (3%)

Pride and Prejudice is the winner! I have two polls up now: one about Pride and Prejudice, the other a random topic.

The Pride and Prejudice poll question is "Which adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is your favorite?" You will be able to pick from the 1940 movie (Greer Garson), 1981 miniseries (Elizabeth Garvie), 1995 miniseries (Jennifer Ehle), 2005 movie (Keira Knightly), or another version. For this poll, you can only choose one option.

The random topic question is "What are some of your favorite adaptation/novel authors of classic literature?" You will be able to chose from more than one out of the following: Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, the Bronte sisters, Anthony Trollope, George Eliot, Shakespeare, and an other option.

Thank you again for voting! Feel free to vote in both polls! Voting for both of these polls will be open from now until April 2nd.


  1. I love polls! =) It's so fun to see what people say.

  2. Melody,
    Thank you! And thank you for adding a link to here at your blog. I added Regency Delight ~ Jane Austen, etc. to my links. :-)

  3. I love polls too. Totally agree with Melody. :) For authors...I voted for Jane Austen (of COURSE!), Elizabeth Gaskell, the Bronte sisters, and Shakespeare. And that was totally for your interest/entertainment. ;) I should put up polls on Austenitis...

  4. "Elegance of Fashion" - you're very welcome! :) You have a very lovely blog. And thank you for adding me!

    Charity - I went with Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Charles Dickens. ;-) You should put a poll on Austenitis! =D

  5. Melody,
    Thank you! And you're welcome! :-)

    I voted for Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Anthony Trollope in the second poll. For the first one, I had to pick the 1995 miniseries.
