Jane Austen, A to Z: Janeite

https://reginajeffers.blog/2018/01/18/anatomy-of-a-janeite/

Are you a Janeite? Do you know what it means to be a Janeite? Until recently, I had no idea there were Janeites. There are people who are superfans of Jane Austen. They love Jane Austen as much as other people love superheroes or rockstars.

According to the definition in the image above, then I would fit into the Janeite category. The definition of a Janeite according to Austen scholar Claudia Johnson is “the self-consciously idolatrous enthusiasm for ‘Jane’ and every detail relative to her.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janeite

How obsessed are you with Jane Austen?
