(best read with your favorite p&p song : ) )
i have a cure for empty walls
and empy halls, and hearts:
set them on the ball-room floor
and wait until the music starts
feeling so very heavy and so light,
the feet scuttling in such sweet patterns
and drifting as each other's delight,
take me, take me far into the night.
i watched the most recent version of pride and prejudice with keira knightly, and though it was not perfect, it simply was. i am some parts through the book, and so i cannot speak from a book-perspective, but i do think that the movie brings up a very strong motif.
one of the song on the soundtrack is titled "Liz on top of the World". and i feel that that is so important a theme... like she had filled herself up with herself and so she was at the top of her world. and i do think that the romantic love in Austen's novel's is just that, but perhaps there is more to it... as if the endings when the character's fall in love is symbolic of themselves having gotten to know themselves. kinda? i'm beginning to think that true love in her novels comes at the end for a reason similar to that.
they were on top of the world.
