Pride & Prejudice (2005) Fan Blog
celebrates 7 Years Online!
On this day (May 29th, 2007), 7 years ago, I started this blog. Wow, 7years! I can't believe it's been 7 years already! It seems just like yesterday, I was a virgin to blogger, lol..and was learning and figuring out how to add codes and contents to this blog. I never thought I'd be blogging about all things P&P, let alone this long, but it's all because of my on going love for this 2005 movie version of Pride & Prejudiceand the amazing actors who portrayed my favorite P&P characters brilliantly on this 4th-time Oscar nominated film. I really enjoyed blogging here and posting all things P&P (though in recent years it's been mostly P&P actors and their TV & Film project news articles)and Austen related topics as frequently as I've been able to for all these 7 years. Well, you know what they say, time flies when you're having so much fun. Indeed, it had flown by so quickly a…

Celebrating 200 Years of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park

Image
Today Austen fans are celebrating the 200th Birthday of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park or rather the 200th anniversary of its first publication, which was this month May 1814, 200 years ago. Interesting, there had only been three TV (2) and film (1) adaptations made on this one. The MP novel is not quite a fan favorite though amongst Austen's six novels nor its adaptations. I've seen 2 (out of 3) adaptations, the 1999 Mansfield Park film with Frances O'Connor & Johnny Lee Miller and the 2007 ITV/PBS Masterpiece TV movie with Billie Piper. I must say I liked and preferred the former and only film version even though it wasn't faithful to its source material, the MP novel.

Jane Austen's House Museum in Chawton to mark the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mansfield Park tomorrow!

On Friday, staff will join with visitors to celebrate this anniversary of Mansfield Park, the first book which the world-famous Hampshire author wrote entirely at the cottage in C…
