A shame Jane Austen
Never got lost in
Jilly Cooper's fiction;
She'd be baffled by the diction.

Actually - I think that is a little bit disrespectful to the sainted Jilly - her diction is very good. Its just that her books need a tad more editing.

Her diction is good, but it may raise Austen's virginal eyebrow (can an eyebrow be viginal?) due to the raunchy content. Though, actually, we all know that Jane was a saucy minx really.
