Jenny, a lovely, witty student in one of my Brit Lit classes a few years back, sent me this link today.
Apparently revellers walking around Hyde Park today were bemused to be confronted by a 121 foot statue of Pride and Prejudice's Mr. Darcy. The statue was commissioned after a poll revealed that Collin Firth's version of the brooding aristocrat emerging from one of Pemberly's lakes in a drench shirt (and loosened cravat) became one of most memorable British drama moments of all time.
Oh, I remember viewing this scene with my girl students so well. . .giggles galore. Just too silly and sweet at the same time.
Beloved, here's a treat. The original scene, which I hope is not the first time for you. . .Please enjoy it with the innocence Miss Austen would have admired (but please know, you will not find this scene in the book!)
