News — jane austen
Posted by Ruth Weston on
Hello to my friends. January 28th is the anniversary of the publishing of Jane Austen's Pride And Prejudice in 1813... My favourite is the 1995 version with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle... The book was originally published with the author listed as A Lady, as it was considered scandalous for a gently bred woman to publish a book. Eventually, her favourite brother Henry Austen let the cat out of the bag... and subsequently the Prince Regent hinted strongly she should dedicate her next work to him, as he had been an early and devoted fan of her books....
