Pride and Prejudice turns 200

One of my favorite novels, Pride and Prejudice, turned 200 this week. Coincidentally, it's what my high school students are reading right now and most of them are really enjoying it. (One student did remark that the Bennet sisters were stuffier than Alcott's March sisters, however.) Since another student expressed genuine surprise this week when I told him I'd never read a graphic novel, I'm going to say that this cartoon from NPR counts.

Just for fun, here are a few photos from my trip to Bath a few years ago where you can still feel immersed in Jane Austen's world.
