Celebrating Pride and Prejudice: 200 Years of Jane Austen's Masterpiece.
Our dear friend Susannah Fullerton has compiled a wonderful story of one of the world's favorite and most famous books. From what we know of Austen's first draft, to an exploration of the things that make the story so endearing (the heroine, the hero, her relative, the characters). A history of reactions to the novel by other writers and famous folks, and a thoroughly modern exploration of the various mash-ups, crazy gifts, television miniseries, movies, games, and sequels, all P&P-inspired. Celebrate the novel's travels from the trenches of WWI to Hollywood and in translation around the world. With a collection of book illustrations scattered throughout, some you're bound not to have seen. A stylized peacock on the beautiful dust jacket completes the P&P celebration. Susannah heads the Australian branch of the Jane Ausen Society. Please note this is the same book as our item#16678, which was a reprint of this book from a different publisher. Voyageur Press, 2013, Hb, Dj. List $25.99. Reduced price due to light dust jacket shelf wear or small tears. NEW. $15.00
