Who are You in Literature?
I know there are dozens of online quizzes to test which literary character you are most like. But I find they're never really accurate. Have you ever truly thought about who you are most like, among your favourite books? When I was little, I wanted to be like Anne of Green Gables. Then I grew up and realised that I actually really am! Unfortunately, I'm not so much like the refined, elegant, grown-up Anne. I'm most like the 11-year-old impetuous, dreamy, forgetful, emotional Anne. Although I've never yet drowned a mouse in the pudding sauce.
But I'm an Anne who didn't marry a Gilbert. Instead, I married Mr. Darcy. We seem to make a good match.
I don't know if the original Anne would have suited the original Mr. Darcy. What do you think? Who are you in literature?
