Jane Austen's heroines seize upon adventure. And those travels often change their lives forever.
Anne's group trip to Lyme crushes a budding romance and rekindles an older one in Persuasion. Elizabeth's journey into Derbyshire gets the credit for her happily ever after in Pride and Prejudice. And what about Northanger Abbey? Well, Catherine's story only happens because she seeks adventures abroad in Bath.
As Jane Austen says, "If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad."
About the Design
This design captures the spirit of adventure found in Austen's work.
It is part of the "Be the Main Character" collection based on Jane Austen's heroes and heroines. The collection captures the art style used on the Ellie Dashwood YouTube channel.
This design features a digitally restored illustration from an 1802 fashion magazine that plays a recurring role as Catherine Morland in many videos.
About the Quote
The quote comes from Chapter 1 of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. Here Austen narrates Catherin Morland seizing the chance of adventure:
But when a young lady is to be a heroine, the perverseness of forty surrounding families cannot prevent her. Something must and will happen to throw a hero in her way.
Mr. Allen, who owned the chief of the property about Fullerton, the village in Wiltshire where the Morlands lived, was ordered to Bath for the benefit of a gouty constitution—and his lady, a good-humoured woman, fond of Miss Morland, and probably aware that if adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad, invited her to go with them. Mr. and Mrs. Morland were all compliance, and Catherine all happiness.
