"Oh the Places We'll Go with Austen" 

 

Below you'll find the two Austen Crossword puzzles created for "The Austen Adventure" book by DG Wynn. The two-part crossword puzzles are spread across pages 34 and 35 of the 2017 edition of the book. I hope you had fun. 

An Austen Crossword - page 34

You'll notice that the page 34 puzzle is entirely locations related to Pride and Prejudice. While there are even more locations that could have been added, the most prominent were chosen with a few curve balls thrown in!

An Austen Crossword - page 35

Page 35 crossword puzzle:

You'll notice that the page 35 puzzle references locations from the other five novels of Jane Austen: Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Northanger Abbey. And, yes, I said her other five novels, because I really don't count any of the unfinished manuscripts as part of "her work."

 

I know other people argue to add the various incomplete manuscripts to Austen's cannon, but I feel a lady who was that much of a genius at nuanced inticacies would loathe the idea that we are reading some of her works before she herself called them fit for reading.

 

Granted, it didn't stop me from reading Sanditon or Love and Friendship, etc., but they are not the "good stuff" in my opinion, though I think the way Sanditon was finished was pleasant.
