Ready for Jane Austen villains quizzes? Jane Austen is known for her strong heroes and novels: what characters are better known than Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy? Or Emma Woodhouse and Mr. Knight? But her villains are also well-crafted characters. Partly because Austen realizes that the villain, by twisting his mustache, must not be angry, heavy-handed, or maniacally laughing. It’s a pretender trying to sabotage your relationship. Or a boring, snobbish man who imagines you’re in love with him. Or an intrusive father-in-law determined to destroy your fiancées. These are the villains we will most likely recognize from our daily lives, and Austen writes them with specificity and humor that makes these villains a pleasure to read on the page.

That’s part of why these books are so loved and why so many of Jane Austen’s retellings appear year after year. And why so many readers (including the one who writes this post) feel so attached to her characters. But before I start this Jane Austen villain quiz, let me warn you. None of the results are good. I mean, who wants to think about what they look like to dishonest individuals like Mr. Wickham or Mr. Willoughby? Or proud and domineering as Lady Catherine de Bourgh? Or such a boring fool as Mr. Elton? I will repeat. There are no good options. So proceed to the Jane Austen Rogue Quiz with your caution!
