PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Literary adaptation of the novel by Jane Austen
Jane Austen was born in Steventon, Hampshire, in 1775, into a numerous and culturally lively family. Her father, an Anglican pastor, educated her personally and made his library available to her. Between 1787 and 1793 she wrote Juvenilia, three collections of poems, stories and parodies addressed to the amusement of her friends and acquaintances. In 1795, Jane fell in love with Thomas Langlios Lefroy, but due to their social differences the family of Lefroy considered their marriage to be out of the question. In the same year, Jane started working on drafts of her most well-known novels: Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. At that time, writing was not considered to be a suitable activity for a young woman of good stock and so the novels were published anonymously or under a pseudonym. They became successful immediately. In 1816, Jane fell ill and the following year she went to Winchester in search of a cure. Sadly, she died there the same year.
