Hot and Bothered


Live from Pemberley: Lady Catherine Seemed Gratified (Chapter 29)

Season 6, Ep. 15

The Hunsford party is invited to Rosings in Chapter 29 of Pride and Prejudice. Lizzy finally has the chance to meet the much-discussed Lady Catherine de Bourgh and must answer all of her impertinent questions. Vanessa and Lauren discuss whether to read Lady Catherine generously and what she reflects about the power of the rich.

Dr. Hannah McGregor joins us at the end of the episode to discuss sentimentality in the novel. Her book, A Sentimental Education, is available now! Our next episode is on October 21th, when we’ll be reading chapter 30-32.
