P&P 200: Happy 200th Birthday Pride and Prejudice!

It is a truth universally acknowledged that  Jane Austen's "darling child," PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, originally titled, "First Impressions," celebrates its biggest milestone, its 200th Anniversary of publication today, January 28, 2013!

Happy 200th Birthday Pride and Prejudice!!!
and Happy 200th Anniversary Elizabeth & Darcy!!!


Pride and Prejudice is a novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London.
Though the story's setting is characteristically turn-of-the-19th-century, it retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of 'most loved books' such as The Big Read. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters or themes. To date, the book has sold some 20 million copies worldwide.
