This is my entry for A Classics Challenge’s June prompt. The theme this month is Visual Tour, which I did with my latest classics read, Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey.
What exactly is a Visual Tour?
A series of images that closely represents how you see the scene or description. It doesn’t have to absolutely follow the text but it must reflect the mood. Please be sure to include the quote you are referencing. – from November’s Autumn’s original post
Here I go–
“The morrow brought a very sober-looking morning, the sun making only a few efforts to appear, and Catherine augured from it everything most favourable to her wishes.” – page 84
“They determined on walking around Beechen Cliff, that noble hill whose beautiful verdure and hanging coppice render it so striking an object from almost every opening in Bath.” – page 107
“…and the pump-room to be attended, where they paraded up and down for an hour, looking at everybody and speaking to no one.” – page 31
“As they drew near the end of their journey, her impatience for a sight of the abbey—for some time suspended by his conversation on subjects very different—returned in full force, and every bend in the road was expected with solemn awe to afford a glimpse of its massy walls of grey stone, rising amidst a grove of ancient oaks, with the last beams of the sun playing in beautiful splendor on its high Gothic windows.” – page 154
“It was a narrow winding path through a thick grove of Scotch firs…” — page 171
