Welcome to Teacups and Crosses!



Have you ever wondered if a certain historical period’s actions and outcomes were affected by its society? Or is it more of a question of human nature? Are actions voluntary? Does every person have some evil in them? Should family and friends stay steadfast to each other in difficult situations, or should they bail out for their own security?

In societies in history, women have been burdened with rules and regulations as to how they must act and what propriety commands of them. Literary heroines from two of history’s greatest eras depict how some women wallowed through their social bindings, while others spread their wings. Two specific heroines are Marianne Dashwood of Jane Austen’s novel, Sense and Sensibility, and Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible. Although many others tried the rules, these women played more of a significant role than most of questioning authority, tangible or not.

For my Philosophy Project, I have decided to analyze these questions of human nature by writing a story. The story will be set in Regency era with characters from select Jane Austen novels, with a plot from the Crucible. Various Regency characters will depict Crucible characters, with their respective roles in the plot. Some might call this cheap, some fascinating. Obviously, a different type of evil will play a part than in The Crucible, but you will have to read it to find out how and why!
