Pride & Prejudice, 200 Years On

Posted: January 30, 2013 in General

Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s classic novel, is 200 years old.

When you consider it, that is a long time. older than a lot of countries.  It is also a testament to the story itself.

Each year, piles upon piles of books are written.  The vast majority are soon forgotten.  Others linger for a while before fading away.  And then there are those, for whatever reason, that go on to be classics, read for generation after generation. Pride and Prejudice falls into that category.

It’d be nice to think that in 200 yers something of mine has survived and is still being read.
