Pride & Prejudice shortened further

By method of erasure I reduced Pride & Prejudice to descriptions pertaining to movement in, or descriptions of, space, past, present possible plus anything to do with letters – I did the same with Sense & Sensibility and Persuasion. This involves the movement of people, descriptions of rooms or houses, the drives to Pemberley, the crucial letters in each story. Pride & Prejudice was reduced further to spoken reading of 30 to 40 minutes duration – whilst still being recognisable to close readers of Jane Austen. This piece is the third layer: just the verbs of the original erasure version, the skeleton of space and movement in it – and the important letters. Is there anything recognisable to anyone else other than me? Could these be instructions for a performance?
This piece was recorded in the airing cupboard.

The work was "shown" in Dublin
