Lydia Bennet and George Wickham are in a relationship

Pride and Prejudice as it would be if they'd had Facebook back then. Fabulous.

OMG - what an absolutely fab idea for the English classroom. 'Outline the development of plot/character/problem a la face book' I love it and am gonna suggest it to the English teaching community here in NZ.
As a FB devotee, I laughed and laughed. Today, one of my Y13s said: Mrs Roxborogh, I saw that you were at school marking till 8:30 last night. (see smiles)
Sophie, sez I, I wasn't marking your essays.

That is so very cool.

I saw it as a brilliant piss-take: look at a great novel, robbed of its psychological nuance and narrative movement.

But perhaps it'll help students with the signposts of character and plot.
