To my knowledge, there have been at least ten screen (film and/or television) adaptations of Jane Austen's 1813 novel, "Pride and Prejudice". I believe it has been adapted more times than her other five novels. This is not surprising. It is probably the most beloved of her six novels. I have seen four of those adaptations, myself. And one of them is director-writer Joe Wright's 2005 film adaptation.
"PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" starred Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen as Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy....
IF YOU LOVE PRIDE AND PREJUDICE-- you'll LOVE this new book. Its called 'Edenbrooke' by Julianne Donaldson. It is a must read. Check it out. I actually thought it was better than Pride and prejudice (hard to fathom).
It is similar to P a P (Pride and Prejudice) in all ways. It is a heart pounding romance with lots of twists and turns. Edenbrooke is now my all time favorite books! I couldn't for the life of me set it down.
YOU MUST READ THIS!!! If you love PaP then you will ADORE Edenbrooke. It is a relatively fast read. I have read it twice the...
There have been at least eight adaptations of "Pride and Prejudice", Jane Austen's 1813 novel. But as far as I know, only four are well known or constantly mentioned by many of the novelist's present-day fans. And one of the four happens to be the movie adapted in 1940 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
Directed by Robert Z. Leonard, "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" told the story of the five unmarried daughters of a 19th century English landowner and the efforts of his shrill wife to get them married before his estate is inherited...

'First Impressions' is a newly opened RPG site, dedicated to all Jane Austen characters and books. You have the opportunity to be a Jane Austen character, or even create your own regency character!
With very few members, the majority of Austen's own characters are up for grabs!!

There have been numerous adaptations of Jane Austen’s celebrated 1813 novel, "Pride and Prejudice" over the past decades. Two of these versions happened to be BBC miniseries that aired in 1980 and 1995. It has been a long time since I have viewed the 1980 miniseries. However, I recently saw the 1995 miniseries for the umpteenth time and decided to finally write a review of it. Adapted by screenwriter Andrew Davies, the miniseries was produced by Sue Birtwistle and directed by Simon Langton.
I've published twenty books in genres from memoir to mystery but I never thought of doing an Austen mashup until I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
While I enjoyed Zombies at first because it was surprising and funny, eventually it started to feel like a one-note protest against all the decorous PBS Austen series and all the die-hard Austen fans around the world. Dude, forget carriages and bonnets, gimme brains!
Zombies reads like graffiti, which can be ugly or beautiful depending on your point of view. You see that split on...
As many fans of Jane Austen must know, there have been several screen and television adaptations of the author’s most celebrated novel, "Pride and Prejudice", published in 1813. I usually come across at least five of those versions – including the six-part BBC adaptation that aired in the U.S. in 1980. The miniseries was adapted by Fay Weldon and directed by Cyril Coke.
Only someone unfamiliar with Austen’s story would not know that "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" told the story of Elizabeth Bennet, the second-born...
SOCIAL CLASS AND THE BENNET FAMILY IN "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE"
Considering how long I have been a fan of Jane Austen’s 1813 novel, "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" and its numerous television and movie adaptations, I am surprised that I have never considered something about its heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, and her family. Ever since I have been reading numerous articles about the novel and its adaptations, I have noticed that many have labeled the Bennet family as members of the middle-class or the upper middle-class in Regency England. And it finally occurred to me that many of...
I am a big fan of Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice. One day I was sitting on my couch reading Pride and Prejudice and thought, "there needs to be a trivia game for this book..." Well, I did it. I wrote all the questions, which are directly out of the book and made the game. Here is a link to the web page:
I hope you all enjoy Pride and Prejudice Trivia. It will be available in May 2010 on Amazon.com and in independent toy, game & book stores across the...
