Jane Austen and Charles Dickens Quizzes!

You are Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are impulsive, romantic, impatient, and perhaps a bit too brutally honest. You enjoy romantic poetry and novels, and play the pianoforte beautifully. To boot, your singing voice is captivating. You feel deeply, and love passionately.

Your Jane Austen Hero is; Colonel Brandon!
Yours is a steady man, patient, and solemn at times. Though you may hurt him with your actions, he will remain constant and wait for you no matter what. He will be there when you really need him, and never let you down.

Estella Havisham is the female lead in Great Expectations. Not exactly a heroine, Estella leads Pip Pirrip on under the guidance of Miss Havisham. Though Estella is cruel to men, she resents the way she was brought up and wishes she could show her true feelings. After a disastrous marriage, she realizes she should have married for love. In the end, Dickens leaves it up to the reader whether she returns to Pip or not.

David Copperfield is kind and generous, and in the book of the same name, he outlines his life from his birth to adulthood. David tends to have a passion for silly girls, and sometimes overlooks the love right in front of him. But once he knows the truth, there is no one more devoted!

  Okay first of all - Marianne and Estella.  Wow, I'm certainly a character. ;)  I think I'm more like Marianne, but I can see some Estella definitely in me.  Also, I think David is going to have a handful with me compared to Dora. XD  I think I like the choice of Colonel Brandon better than David...but I could see me liking both of them lol.  Though I don't think I would be as insensitive as Marianne.

What are your results?
