That sounds like a good story idea. If you read Austen's juvenilia
her first attempt at a novel was Catherine, or the Bower
, a send up of the gothic novel. (I never knew the Goths could read, much less write novels.) She reworked that manuscript to produce Northanger Abbey
. Mansfield Park
is pretty hilarious, too. But then, i laughed all the way through The Brothers Karamosov
At university, i had a double major in literature and history.
