There's Something About Darcy by Gabrielle Malcolm | blog tour

Today I'm hopping into the There's Something About Darcy blog tour with a quick, poorly-shot video of my thoughts on this non-fic examination of everyone's favorite rude, socially awkward, condescending, rich, gorgeous, dynamic romantic lead: Fitzwilliam M.* Darcy.

I'd love to hear in the comments which fictional character you'd like to see get the book-length analytical treatment! But for now, There's Something About Darcy is available today!


There's Something About Darcy
by Gabrielle Malcolm
For some, Colin Firth emerging from a lake in that clinging wet shirt is one of the most iconic moments in television. But what is it about the two-hundred-year-old hero that we so ardently admire and love?

Dr Gabrielle Malcolm examines Jane Austen’s influences in creating Darcy’s potent mix of brooding Gothic hero, aristocratic elitist and romantic Regency man of action. She investigates how he paved the way for later characters like Heathcliff, Rochester and even Dracula, and what his impact has been on popular culture over the past two centuries. For twenty-first century readers the world over have their idea of the ‘perfect’ Darcy in mind when they read the novel, and will defend their choice passionately.

In this insightful and entertaining study, every variety of Darcy jostles for attention: vampire Darcy, digital Darcy, Mormon Darcy and gay Darcy. Who does it best and how did a clergyman’s daughter from Hampshire create such an enduring character?

A must-read for every Darcy and Jane Austen fan.

Dr. Gabrielle Malcolm lectures and writes about Jane Austen in popular culture and the global fan phenomena surrounding Austen’s work. She is the author of Fan Phenomena: Jane Austen and is a regular speaker at the annual Jane Austen Festival in Bath, and the Jane Austen Regency Week in Chawton. She lives in Bath.
