About the Author
Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) was an English novelist known for her works which interpreted, critiqued and commented upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favorable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What a wonderful Read. Pride and Prejudice has been one of my all time favorite books, so when I won this copy through Goodreads I was thrilled. I really thought the concept of "Classics Reimagined" was a great idea and what a fun way to introduce such classics to everybody who has not had a chance to read them yet, or even somebody who is very familiar with the books. I know I will treasure my copy forever, and I throughly enjoyed the addition of Alice Pattullo's illustrative interpretation. This would make a wonderful present for any book lover, I hope that Jane Austen would approve.
