Two hundred years ago today, Pride and Prejudice was first published. The author had no name; only "By the author of Sense and Sensibility." I find it amazing that after 200 years we are still reading and cherishing Jane Austen's work. For many, Pride and Prejudice is Jane's masterpiece. Mr. Darcy has captured many ladies' hearts, past and present. Some many women admire Elizabeth Bennett's wit and intelligence. Even if this book is not your favorite of Jane's works, on has to admire the wonderful take on 18th Century English society.
Thank you Jane Austen for this amazing gift! We will cherish it forever!
I'm so honored to share my birthday with the Pride and Prejudice anniversary. It's going to a wonderful birthday reading all the wonderful blog, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest posts about Jane.
