Pride and Prejudice.
Intended for teaching English, level 6 has simpler language than the original but still captures the essence of Austen's light, bright, and sparkling work. The novel is told in a little over 100 pages. There is a helpful glossary and 2-page biography of Austen. Here is an excerpt from this skilled adaptation: "Elizabeth experienced a variety of emotions as she read the letter. She was astonished to discover that Darcy was capable of any sort of apology. It was with a strong prejudice against anything he might say that she began reading his explanation of what had happened at Netherfield, and at first she was too angry with him to treat him with justice." Keira Knightley on the cover. Illustrated by Sue Shields. OUP, 2007. Paper. NEW. $12.00
