I wonder...

Do you think it's possible to successfully imitate the style or language of such classical authors as Austen or the Brontes or Tolstoy? If so, do you think the book would be as well-received in today's society?

This has been weighing on my brain lately. Yes, really. I've been fretting over this.

I've read a few books that try to imitate it, but fail horribly. The closest I've come is Coldwater by Martie McConnochie. But even so...it wasn't quite the same.
