Quiz: Can You Name? {1}


Here is a little quiz where I ask you to name things from period dramas or classic literature. This might be a bit tricky but hopefully won't be too hard. Have fun!

To Play: In the questions below I will ask you to name various things from period dramas or classic literature. Leave your guesses in a comment. Points can be earned for each thing named. I'll respond with your score. Answers will be posted next week.

Scoring: One point for each item asked for. If you name all the things asked for here a high score of 26 points can be earned!

Hint: Please only name the amount of items asked for, you won't get extra points. You do get points for each thing you name, so if you don't know all of the things asked for (like all five Bennet sisters names) just name what you can. :)


Can You Name...

1. The five Bennet sisters from Pride and Prejudice?

2. Three classic novels named after houses?

3. Two governesses from period dramas?

4. Two actress who have played Emma Woodhouse?

5. The original title of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice?

6. A set of twins from a period drama?

7. Two clergymen from a period drama?

8. All six Jane Austen novels?

Does Downton Abbey count as a classic novel?

Miss Sneyd said...

I can't believe I wrote that on #3! Gwendolen went through so much so she wouldn't have to be a governess. Can I change my answer to Agnes Grey?

Manette said...

This is one of the best games you have ever hosted, such a nice idea! :)

1. Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty, Lydia
2. Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, would the Tenant of Wildfell Hall count?
3. Miss Taylor from Emma and Mrs General from Little Dorrit (though she insisted on not being called that...)
4. Gwyneth Paltrow and Romola Garai
5. First Impressions
6. Davy and Dora from the Anne series were twins, weren't they?

9. Mr. Gibson, Dr. Harrison
10. Matthew McFadyen, Colin Firth

Miss Sneyd said...

I'm now realizing that by "period drama" you probably mean movies, not novels, and I don't think that 'Agnes Grey' has been made into a movie. It was sweet of you to count it anyway.
